The Mayoress Kate Houghton and Managing Director of Knutsford based Forum of Private Business, Ian Cass, toured the town centre to judge the efforts of local businesses in the annual Knutsford Christmas Window Competition.
Each year the standard of the Christmas Window displays continues to get higher and higher. All the town centre window displays were viewed as part of the competition and we had formal entries from a large range of retailers and businesses including: Detaljer, Diamond Nails, Canine Cutting Club, B&V Trading, Arthur Lee, The White Orchid, and Clare and Illingworth.
The overall winner was presented with a trophy and certificate with highly commended certificates going to the runners up.
This year the winner was Wine and Wallop with The Tea Room and Ürban Sanctuary being highly commended. There was also a prize for the best dressed Charity Shop window, and this was won by The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust on Canute Place. The best small window competition was won by Innovations Hairdressing.
Mayoress Kate Houghton said, “I was impressed at both the innovation and sense of style even more this year. Everybody should be extremely proud of the displays they created in making the town look so festive. Picking the winner was difficult and there were several shop fronts being in running for the top slot. Unfortunately, there could be only one winner – Wine and Wallop – their display was festive, eye-catching and innovative!”
