celebrate-christmas-at-skiptons-high-corn-mill-with-a-sleighselfieSkipton’s medieval High Corn Mill is inviting seasonal shoppers to take part in its Christmas competition for a bit of festive fun.

From December 1 up to Christmas Eve visitors to the 14th century mill are being encouraged to take a selfie with the sleigh in the building’s courtyard and share it online. Pictures will be entered into one of two categories: 14 and under, and over 14s.

Said owner, Andrew Mear: “This year we wanted to do something different and with smart phones and social media being such a big part of everyday life, we thought a selfie competition would be a great way to help get families into the Christmas spirit.”

All entrants need to do is upload their selfies onto Twitter using the hashtag #sleighselfie and tag @akapr1 before December 25. The two winning photos will be announced in January 2017. The winner of the under 14s will get a prize from The Present Planners in Craven Court and the over 14s will receive a voucher for Tom Sexton, a beauty salon based in the mill.
