Winners announced in Christmas window competition

1 Mins read

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s annual Christmas window competition has helped to spread festive magic through our towns and villages.

The initiative encouraged business owners to get in to the spirit of the season by coming up with creative displays.

Throughout December, a panel of independent judges scored the decorated windows, and they were wowed by everyone’s artistic efforts which created a warm welcome for shoppers and visitors.

The winners were selected using a number of criteria including overall impression and visual impact, creativity and ideas, and the positive perception it gave to the town centre.

Congratulating everyone who took part, the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Sean Bateson said: “In the weeks leading up to Christmas many members of the public have made comments about the beautiful festive shop window displays. I have noticed this during my various engagements across the Borough, and have really admired the creativity and skill involved. The Christmas windows have helped to attract people in to our area and have encouraged people to ‘shop local’ this Christmas.”

The competition applied to 11 towns and villages, and each winning business was presented with a bespoke glass trophy in recognition of their efforts.

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Town and Village Manager Julienne Elliott said: “Our congratulations go to all shops and businesses who took part in this year’s competition. The standard just gets higher every year, and that is really great to see. The windows help to create a welcoming atmosphere and they encourage people to spend time browsing and shopping when they are in town, which is very important for our ‘Shop local’ Christmas campaign.”
