Designers of stunning displays produced by entrants to this year’s Wetherby Christmas Window Dressing competition were praised by the organisers.

The contest, open to all town centre businesses, attracted a high standard.

Spokesman for the competition, Welcome to Wetherby chairman, Cindy Bentley said: “The standard was extremely high this year with only a few marks separating several of the entrants.

“The Welcome to Wetherby team would like to thank all of the local businesses who entered into the spirit of the competition and produced such stunning windows.”

Winner of the Junior Judges’ Award for their favourite window was James Brindley, with runner-up Touchwood.

The Engine Shed had donated four tickets for one of their tribute nights in February.

Certificates were presented by the five children who judged the windows – two boys and two girls from Crossley Street School and a Year 11 student from Wetherby High School.

The Senior Judges’ Award went to Sillie Billie, with joint runners-up, The Stationery Cupboard and Nicolla Florist.

The award, a meal for two at the Bridge Hotel, was presented by Philip Roberts, President of the Wetherby Business Association.

A special Community Award was presented to Wetherby Library for their window which had contributions from various groups in the local community.

The overall winner of the Wetherby Business Association crystal trophy was Nicolla Florist with runner-up Sillie Billie.

The competition was launched last year by Welcome to Wetherby.
