Digital advent calendar celebrates Moray’s contribution to Christmas

There can’t be a home anywhere in the UK that doesn’t have a bit of Moray in it at Christmas.
That’s the claim from John Cowe, chairman of Moray Economic Partnership who has found an unusual way to get the message across and wish everyone a Very Moray Christmas.

“Moray-Speyside produces such a wide range and high volume of festive goodies that it should be described as Scotland’s Christmas hamper,” he said.

“From smoked salmon to whisky, shortbread to Christmas pudding, this area makes a mouth-watering contribution to the festive season. And in an area where two thirds of the land is forest, we can even provide the Christmas tree.”

Now to highlight the fact that Moray-Speyside provides a little slice of everyone’s Christmas, the Moray Economic Partnership is today publishing a digital advent calendar and encouraging people to share it.

Created by award-winning digital content producer Recite Films, the calendar showcases products, events and places to see.

“We are not only showing off all our goodies – we’d like people to see why Moray is such a lovely place to visit, live in and work in.

“Wildlife watching, fly fishing and skiing are just some of the things you can do and all within a short distance,” added Mr Cowe.
