Shops urged to enter Christmas windows competition

* Sion Corn arrives for the annual Christmas festival.

Shops in Llangollen town centre are being encouraged to enter a competition to find the most attractive window displays in the run-up to Chistmas.

It’s being organised as part of the annual Christmas festival, which this year will be held on Saturday November 30.

Prizes and certificates are up for grabs for the most attractive displays which will be judged by the town’s mayor and deputy mayor.

Town crier and town councillor Austin “Chem” Cheminais, who chairs the Christmas Festival committee, said: “Our family orientated festival attracts over 2,000 people into Llangollen town centre and in recent years feedback has been extremely positive.

“The Christmas shopping experience offered by local traders is an important element of our success.

“In the busy Christmas period, there is nothing more important than the Christmas shop front or business window display to attract customers through the door and create a colourful and festive experience for shoppers.”

He added: “Once again Llangollen Christmas Festival is hoping that shop owners will join in and will be awarding certificates and prizes for the most attractive displays

“Judging will take place in the week beginning December 2.

“Windows will be judged by our mayor Cllr Jon Haddy and our deputy mayor Cllr Issy Richards.

“Judging will reflect on windows that capture the imagination and embrace all things festive. The more Christmassy the better.”

The winning window will be announced on llanblogger and other local social media and prizes will be awarded the following week.
