Shooters American Diner in March has revealed their entry in the town's annual festive window competition ran by the mayor, Cllr Rob Skoulding.

The riverside restaurant has crafted the display purely out of recycled materials found in the kitchen and from their food and drink deliveries.

Olivia Linley of the diner was the lead creative on the project which has seen coffee filters turned into snowflakes and straws as candy canes.

Claire Smethurst, diner co-owner, said: "This year we decided to counter the waste that the food industry is notoriously accused of.
