Christmas Window Display Competition is a Winner!Monday, December 15th, 2014
Hairdressers, jewellers, travel agents and fashion stores throughout Dorchester Town Centre were some of the entrants in a Christmas window competition. In total 17 shops entered this year’s inaugural competition. The winner was Nicoll World Travel who received the £300 cash prize and a trophy which can be re-used each year.
The competition was organised by Scott Duncan from Medusa Apothecary. He said “I’m delighted how well the competition was supported in its first year and to see how much work had gone into turning shop windows into festive scenes.” He went on to say “The efforts of shop staff in decorating their windows are fantastic and it’s great to recognise those businesses that really get behind Christmas in Dorchester and make it a more festive place for our customers. I hope this competition will grow over the coming years to become even more popular and a regular fixture.”
A certificate, trophy and the cash prize was presented by Mr Duncan to Chris Greenway at Nicoll World Travel on Cracker Night as they were judged to have the best window that sparkled with festive cheer. Also recognised were Goulds Department Store, Dorchester Travel and Great Western Camping who have been supplying equipment for camping in Dorset for many years.
Next year it is hoped that there will be a committee of judges and possibly a public vote as well.
