Calderdale Family Fun Day and Mytholmroyd Christmas Market

Tomorrow is Calderdale Family Fun Day, see the flier below. I met one of the Organisers at the Mytholmroyd Christmas Market today, which was a great event and Silly Billy’s Toy Shop  was very happy to be there. We all had a good day overall and the event was well organised. So well done to all those who made it happen.

A special thank-you goes out to Peter Metcalfe of Pennine Provisions who helped rescue us when the transport we had planned fell through.
(Thanks so much Peter, you are a star !!)

Next year Sillly Billy’s Toy Shop will also hope to have a presence at the Mytholmroyd Christmas Market. If you are interested in Silly Billy’s attending any other events then get in touch.

This is what the folks at Wikipedia say about Todmorden:

Todmorden (/ˈtɒdmədən/; locally /ˈtɒdmɔːdən/[1] /ˈtɒdmərdən/ or /tɔːmdɪn/)[2] is a market town and civil parish[3] in the Upper Calder Valley in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, England. It is 17 miles (27 km) from Manchester and in 2011 had a population of 15,481.[4]

Todmorden is at the confluence of three steep-sided Pennine valleys and is surrounded by moorlands with outcrops of sandblasted gritstone.

The historic boundary between Yorkshire and Lancashire is the River Calder and its tributary, the Walsden Water, which run through the town. The administrative border was altered by the Local Government Act 1888 placing the whole of the town within the West Riding.

The town is served by Todmorden and Walsden railway stations.
Short and sweet, full URL to the wiki page is here

Lastly don’t forget about Silly Billy’s ongoing Lego Competition, the Big One, anyone can take part and it’s completely free to enter.

Lego Christmas Competition

Lego Christmas Competition- THE BIG ONE

This Competition has now ended.

Forget #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, here at Silly Billy’s this 2016 you can obtain some amazing Lego prizes for only 180 seconds or less of your time,
interested? Then read on…

The Advent Calendar Competition had some good results for Silly Billy’s gaining a greater number of likes on Facebook. As most folk who use Facebook know, Facebook is the largest Social Media Site on the planet and as Social Marketeers, and Internet Marketeers like Robert A Williams know, Facebook has the biggest impact on raising brand awareness and helping the general visibility of a business, in this case Silly Billy’s Toy Shop

So this Christmas Competition is basically after the same goal as the last competition:-
Please could you, if you haven’t already done so, like Silly Billy’s on Facebook and also fill out this very simple form.

This whole process should take you no longer than 180 seconds we think

So what if you have already liked Silly Billy’s on Facebook, can you still enter ?
YES – You can, all you need to do is one of the following:-

Our preference would be if you could like Silly Billys Facebook Page, though if you have already done that in the past then any one of the above actions, joining the mailing list; following Silly billy’s on Pinterest or Twitter; would gain you entry into this amazing competition.
At the time of writing our goal is to achieve 2000 page likes before the end of this year (2016) and this is how we are doing so far:
Facebook Page Likes

This, like the last Advent Calender Competition, is a very simple competition, follow/like/or join our mailing list, all entries will be included in the mailing list anyway as we often notify people of competitions and news like this when we are able. AND, very importantly, Please fill out this form to enable us to track who has entered the competition.

Now onto the good bit, what can you win.
Well this year we are not holding back, we have two Lego Set’s available to the potential Winner and the Winner can decide which one to have !
This is the choice, you can WIN either a Lego Friends 4119 Heartlake Cupcake Cafe or a Lego Ninjago 70592 Salvage M.E.C
Lego Christmas Competition 2016

This competition will close on the night of Monday 19th December 2016, you must provide a valid email address on this form so that we can contact you and tell you that you have won. If the winner does not reply within 48 hrs of the competition closing on 19/12/2016 then it is unlikely that they will receive their prize before Christmas because the last day of Christmas Posting in the UK  is on Wednesday 21st December 2016. We will post your prize FOC to UK standard rate postal zones.

It has been noted that despite Silly Billy’s moving almost nine months ago now, people still do not know where we are !! It is very easy to find us, we are on Old Gate in Hebden Bridge, in the new building next to the river and we are next door to the amazing Homely at Hebden who have a lot of exciting gifts for you this Christmas, and have created a fantastic Christmas Window Display, come in and see us today !

Homely at Hebden, Christmas Window 2016

If you need more details or even a map of how to get to us or Homely at Hebden then go here:

The Small Print
If you want to enter this fantastic Lego Christmas Competition from outside the UK then that is fine, however, we would point out that we will ask you to contribute towards the postage of your prize, which could be up to £15 for anyone entering from New Zealand and also that you will not receive your prize until the new year in 2017. We will send you PayPal request for postage should you win from outside of the United Kingdom
