New for 2020 festive season, people in Putney will be able to enjoy Elmer’s Colourful Christmas Trail from Saturday 28th November to Monday 4th January. Positively Putney have partnered with Andersen Press to bring Elmer the Patchwork Elephant to Putney. Based on David McKee’s beloved books, 13 festive Elmer posters will be displayed outdoors around Putney town centre encouraging people to discover more of Putney this festive season in a safe, socially distanced environment. A Trail Map is available to download from www.positivelyputney.co.uk/ElmerinPutney. Following the trail will enable participants to enjoy Putney’s fantastic shops, eateries and other businesses along the way.
Each Elmer poster has a QR code whereby participants can gain reward points for the newly launched Putney Points Local Rewards scheme. Local rewards are helping Putney retailers increase sales by encouraging local loyalty, every time you spend in a Putney business you will gain reward points to redeem in the same or a neighbouring business. The Local Rewards Scheme is in collaboration with Maybe*, part of the Governments High Street Task Force.
