Christmas Window Display Competition: winners!

A charity supporting vulnerable adults in Wellingborough has won the town’s annual Christmas window display competition.

The Daylight Centre shop in Sheep Street, which raises money for the Daylight Centre which supports vulnerable adults, scooped first prize for its festive display.

The judging was based on effort, innovation and its relevance to the promotion of the business.

The Daylight Centre manager, Paul Adams, said: “We pride ourselves on offering time, space and practical guidance, to those who need it. Christmas can be a difficult time for some, but we still wanted the shop to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and highlight our work in a festive manner. We’re a friendly group here and we wanted the front of the shop to reflect how welcoming we are to everyone who comes inside.”

Knitting and embroidery shop JanKnits in Park Road, owned by Janet Brown, was given second place for the beautiful knitted and crocheted items in her window which includes a nativity scene.

The winner of the People’s Choice Award, which was determined by an online vote, went to OFT at Cambridge Street, followed in second place by Vision Vape at Silver Street. The festive windows of Rockabilly Rose the Florist, Halsey Opticians, The Lunar Tree, Wellingborough Trains & Models and Keyboard Kavern were also popular with the local folk! 

Thank you to each and every one of our businesses that participated – you helped to make our town a bright and cheerful place in the festive season!
