Decorate the Tree Competition

Decorate our Christmas Tree to win a luxury hamper, brimming with £100 worth of delicious goodies – both naughty AND nice – just in time for Christmas!

Help us decorate the Focus Magazines Christmas Tree! In our December issue of the Focus (which will be arriving through your letterbox in the coming days), you’ll find our Christmas Tree, waiting to be decorated with lots of Local Business Christmas Baubles.

Once you receive your copy of the magazine, keep hold of it, so you can play along each day.

Each day in December until 20th, we’ll be revealing that day’s Christmas Bauble and its position on the tree. Cut out the bauble from the magazine, and stick it onto the tree in the correct position. Keep checking and Facebook @TheFocusMagazine each day for a new bauble and where to stick it!

On 20th December, you’ll have a locally decorated Christmas tree, full of baubles in the correct positions. Take a photo of it and email it to us at

We will enter all the correct entries into a draw and announcer the winner today.

If you don’t happen to receive a copy of the Focus, you can still play along by printing out a copy of the tree here, and all the baubles here.

Don’t worry – even though you won’t have your hard copy of the Focus yet, we’ll make sure we keep reminding you of the bauble positions at regular intervals so you can keep up to date. We’ll also provide a couple of reminders throughout the month if you happen to miss a few days.
