The weather may resemble a winter rather than a summer in Lincoln this year, but celebrating Christmas in July?

A group of local businesses met at the White Hart Hotel on July 18 to get into the festive spirit ahead of the crowds.

National Christmas décor retailer, Fizzco Limited hosted the event to launch its new range of Christmas decorations, FizzcoTrade.

The company helps other businesses decorate their premises over the holiday period, with a number of touches not available in the UK yet.

FizzcoTrade took over the Eastgate Function Suite, transforming it into a winter wonderland for local businesses.

Attendees were also treated to festive canapés and homemade mince pies, and the chance to win £300-worth of decorations for one business.

Fizzco Limited Director Wendy Clarkson said: “FizzcoTrade is a new venture for us but it is based on over 35 years’ of experience of supplying Christmas decorations and trees through our retail outlet ChristmasTimeUK.

“If you’re looking for classy, new, different and unique decorations we’ve got the ideal collection for you.

“We’ve got everything you could imagine, from the biggest baubles through to stunning seasonal table centres and Theme Decorating Packages which provide corporate clients with everything they need to transform an office or reception area.”
