Cups and cash for Christmas window winners

TWO March businesses that created festive and eye catching window displays have been rewarded for their efforts, by being declared winners of the March Town Council’s Christmas window competition.

High Street florists White September took the honours in the large window category, while The Barbers Shop in Station Road won the prize for being the best small festive window.

Both shops were presented with a �50 cheque and a cup by the Mayor of March, Councillor Jan French, who said: “I would like to congratulate the winners, and thank all businesses who made our town look so festive.”

At The Flower Basket, manageress Linda Hunns said: “We were thrilled to be the winners. We have just had a revamp of the shop, that was formerly called the Flower Basket.

“We have gone for a vintage look, and so decorated the window for Christmas with that in mind, with traditional toys and parcels.”

Stylists Trudy North and Kayleigh Pepper from The Barber Shop hand made most of the decorations in their window, from a super sized Christmas cake complete with knife and decorations, to some Christmas crackers.

Trudy said: “We try to make everything ourselves, to make it a really unique window display. The cup will now have pride of place in the window, for everyone to see.”
