And what better way to celebrate than with a selection of meat from your local butcher?
In what has become somewhat of a tradition in itself, we have teamed up with Turnbull’s of Alnwick to make your Christmas really go with a banger!
One lucky reader will win a luxurious hamper, full of tasty delights.
The winner will be able to choose from Turnbull’s Deluxe Christmas Hamper or the Boneless Turkey Crown Hamper, both of which sell for £96.
The Deluxe contains a 4.5kg fresh barn-reared turkey, 2lb matured beef topside, 2lb boned gammon joint, 1lb home-cured back bacon, 1lb streaky bacon, 1lb traditional pork chipolatas, 1lb pork sausagemeat, 1lb of apple, apricot and ginger sausagemeat stuffing and four individual small pork pies.
Or swap the turkey for a 2.5kg boneless turkey crown.
To be in with a chance of winning, you’ll need to answer the following question on the form, right:
What is the traditional meat served on Christmas Day?
Complete the rest of the form and send it to the Gazette at the address given.
The first correct answer drawn after the closing date of Friday, December 8, will win the hamper, which must be collected from Turnbull’s of Alnwick at 33-35 Market Street. You can also order a hamper at the shop or by calling 01665 602186.
