Find the Elf in the Shop


Find the Elf in the Shop is an initiative of Bathurst Regional Youth Council.

To encourage the Buy Local Gift Card promotion and to support local businesses, Bathurst Regional Youth Council are coordinating a Treasure Hunt between 8 December and 21 December 2020 where residents have to identify the twenty stores with an elf in their window display. Clues will be provided to direct residents to participating stores. When the elf is found the details (including the name of the store and describe what the elf is doing) are to be completed on the entry form. 

Participating businesses will be encouraged to place the elf in their shop window or in a prominent position that is visible after hours.  If you spot an elf, why not share you find on social media (but don't give too much away) with the #selfiewithelfiebathurst. We'd love to see your photos so we can reshare them on our social media pages. 

Correct entries will go into a draw for a chance to win one of 5 x $100 Buy Local Gift Cards. 

Competition Entry Form can be downloaded below or are available on the Ground Floor at Bathurst Regional Council's Civic Centre, 158 Russell Street Bathurst or can be filled out online.

Clues to where the 20 elves are located is available below or via the Bathurst Youth Facebook page.

Completed Entry Forms can be submitted via email or dropped off to Santa's Letter Box on the Ground Floor at Bathurst Regional Council’s Civic Centre, 158 Russell Street Bathurst.
