Sparkly and Safe

10 December 2015

Want to show off your wonderfully decorated Christmas tree to the world? Send us a pic and not only will it appear below in our online scrapbook, but you’ll also be in with the chance of winning an iPad.

To enter, all you need to do is post a pic of your tree on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #sparklyandsafe (just make sure any posts are set to ‘public’ so we’ll be able to see your entry).

When you’re snapping your pic, we’d like you to take a second to ask yourself: ‘Did I properly check the fairy lights before I put them on the tree?’ Because, after twelve months of being stowed away, they could easily have become electrically unsafe…

Then you can put your mind at rest by following our quick Christmas tree lights checklist to help keep you and your family safe this Christmas.

For more tips on installing your electrical Christmas decorations safely, see our Christmas lights safety page.
