With twenty entries this year, the competition was fierce, but Shirley and her team at 'Swagbox - The Gift Shop' put in mammoth effort and managed to create a truly spectacular Halloween window display. It was artistic, creative and a real show stopper all round. Well done Swagbox!!

That's not to say this wan't a close run race! All of the other nineteen entries were fantastic, being spooky, scary and eye-catching in equal measure.

However difficult it may be for our judges, we always ask them to shortlist a selection of entries which they believe stands out in terms of impact or injenuity. Each shortlisted entry receives a 'Highly Commended' certificate. There were six in total and our congratulations go to the following (photos shown below):

  • The Cozy Cafe, Castle Street
  • Curiosity Boutique, Regent Court
  • Martin & Co, Castle Street
  • RSPCA Charity Shop, Castle Street
  • Scrivins Estate Agents, Castle Street
  • Yesterware Sweet Shop, Regent Court

Thank you to all of the businesses who entered the competition, it really does make a visit to the town so much more exciting and enjoyable for all ages. Alongside our BID half term Halloween themed treasure hunt, it really is great fun.

Shoppers, remember to keep your eyes peeled for our next Window Competition which will launch very soon for Christmas!
