Shop windows with festive feel
Boston businesses in festive mood had their dressed to impress shop windows judged for the annual borough council-sponsored competition.
Judges Cllr Paul Skinner, Clive Gibbon, the council's new economic development manager, and museum officer Polly Wilkinson, visited the 24 entries with their clipboards.
- Local Independent - 1st The Sleep Shop, 2nd Philip George Hair, 3rd Tip Tan Toe.
- Multiple/ Chain - 1st Specsavers, 2nd Oldrids, 3rd Pandora.
- Charity - 1st Blackfriars , 2nd Centrepoint , 3rd Butterfly Hospice
The winners will each receive a trophy which they hold for a year, a certificate and a donation of £75 to the charity of their choice. Those placed 2nd and 3rd placed in each category will each receive a highly commended certificate.
Feedback from the judges was very positive, noting the use of hand-crafted decorations in some and how everyone had clearly thought about how to arrange the windows and that each display was very individual.
