 Newent 2014 Christmas Shop Windows Competition

Theme ‘A Snowy FROZEN Christmas’

First: New Start Cat Rescue

Second: Dean Forest Hospice Shop

Third: Redz

Highly Commended:

Erols, &

The Chill-Out Zone

Judges comments: A lot of thought and effort has been put into the winning window which shows some originality too. Every window dresser has a different ‘take’ on their window and a lot of shops have made an effort. That makes it harder to judge but the overall effect of so many themed shop windows is to make Newent look very pretty and Christmassy.
