Santa rewards Christmas window winners

* Santa and Christmas Festival Committee member Ian Parry, right, hand the winner's certificate to Sharon Jones on behalf of Lily Rose Interiors.

Santa himself handed over certificates to the winners of this year's competition to find Llangollen's most attractive Christmas window display.

On Monday the town's mayor, Cllr Jon Haddy, and deputy mayor, Cllr Issy Richards, toured shops and businesses picking out the most impressive seasonal creations as part of the Llangollen Christmas Festival staged last Saturday.

And after choosing the winners they called on Santa - aka Austin "Chem" Cheminais who chairs the festival committee - to make presentations to the lucky entrants.

Overall winner was Lily Rose Interiors in Castle Street, while the three highly commended windows were those at Jade's Hair & Beauty in Oak Street, Holben Hairdressing in Bridge Street and  Riverbanc cafe also in Bridge Street.

Chem said: "The appearance of our shops and businesses is all part of the process of Llangollen looking its best in the run-up to Christmas and our four winners have done us proud with their eye-catching presentations.

"I'd like to thank them and everyone who entered into the seasonal spirit by decorating their windows for all the fantastic effort they put into it."

* With the highly commended certificate for Jade's Hair & Beauty is Susan Davies.  

* Hannah Ford with the highly commended certificate for Riverbanc.

* Holben Hairdressing was also highly commended for its display. The certificate 
is accepted by owner Georgina Holben.
