Christmas cards with a local twist

ANDY  York Photography is now selling its unique Christmas cards showing photographs of festive scenes in Melksham, to raise money for the Christmas lights group.

Andy, based in the Littlebrook Centre on Bath Road, has selected a handful of his own photographs of the town at Christmas and is selling them to raise money for Melksham’s Christmas Lights.

Andy said, “We’ve been doing this for a few years now and they do sell well. I think the cards are popular because they’re one of a kind and they have a nostalgic quality. They’re ideal to send to relatives or people who have moved away from the town.

“I came up with the idea because the Christmas lights group is often appealing for funds, so we wanted to do our bit.

“The volunteers are out in all weather working hard and they do a fantastic job; people in Melksham are very proud of the lights.

“Christine and I are part of the town as both residents and business owners, and we wanted help out in our own small way to make the lights the best they can be – if you can find a town this size with better Christmas lights, be my guest.”

The cards are A6 size and come in packs of six, costing £3.95. They can be bought from Andy York Photography at 6a Littlebrook Centre. For more information contact Andy or Christine York on 01225 707688.
