PRESS RELEASE – New Milton highlighted at the New Forest Show
Under the theme of Go New Milton, the vibrant town centre, and New Milton’s great variety of shops and cafés, were promoted against a backdrop of dramatic photography of New Milton’s green spaces, seafront and town centre.
With tempting prizes, 350 competition entries were received on the stand over the three days of the Show. One competition, sponsored by The Chewton Glen, required entrants to read a colourful leaflet promoting the Go New Milton website and the wealth of independent traders in and around the town centre. The Naked Pantry, New Milton’s innovative zero waste store, sponsored another competition which asked people to guess the weight of nurdles in a glass jar. These tiny pellets, found on local beaches, are the result of plastic breaking down in the sea. The competition did much to raise awareness of the perils of plastic to local marine life.
Prize winners are being selected and will be notified by email shortly.
