Shoppers are being urged to support their local shops this Christmas.

Braintree Council has launched a campaign to get residents back into Halstead town centre during the festive period.

It has produced a Christmas gift guide and is advertising on bin trucks and bus stops.

Chris Siddall, cabinet member for prosperity, said: “There really is no reason to shop elsewhere.

“Our local towns have everything you could need for your Christmas gift ideas and the gift guide will give you a flavour of what’s available in your town.

"By supporting your local shops you can really help to keep your towns buzzing and support the local economy.”
