Mansfield's Business Improvement District (Business Improvement District) has launched a shop front decorating contest for town centre businesses – inviting businesses to decorate their shop fronts with yellow and blue to celebrate Mansfield Town Football Club’s promotion to League One.

Mansfield Town recently won 2-1 against Accrington Stanley to secure the points they needed to enter League One for the first time in over two decades.
