Snap a festive selfie with Maes-Ted!

07 December 2017

If you go down to Maesteg today, you’re in for a big surprise, as a six foot festive bear has turned up in the market square to help spread some yuletide cheer!

Made up of tinsel and hundreds of Christmas lights, ‘Maes-Ted’ is helping shoppers get fully into the Christmas spirit, and if you snap a selfie with him you could stand a chance of winning a £50 voucher to spend in the market.

Councillor Richard Young, Bridgend County Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities said: “If your bank account is already looking a little grizzly after lots of Christmas shopping, simply take your best funny and festive selfies with this friendly bear and post them on the Maes-Ted facebook page for a chance to win.

“This is a fun initiative to help support local traders and encourage everyone to shop local this festive season.”

Make Christmas shopping a bit more ‘bearable’ by uploading your selfies at the ‘Maes-Ted Selfie Competition’ events page on Facebook.
