Christmas Window Competition 2019

Ellesmere shop owners once again did Ellesmere proud with their efforts for the Winter Festival Shop Window displays. Crowds were thrilled by the variety of entries this year and every one of the windows was a credit to the business who created it.

It was a hard decision for the Mayor & Chamber of Commerce but the winners were:


closely followed by

The Rural Charity Shop.

Christmas Window Competition 2015


Every year the Town Council hosts a Christmas Window Competition and invites a guest to judge the fabulous Window Displays throughout the town. For 2015 Mrs Karen Humphreys, leader of Ducklings Pre-School very kindly accepted the invitation and as she was representing Ducklings, she decided to judged the windows with the children in mind, considering carefully which windows she felt the children would find the most appealing.  We are very pleased to announce that for a second year running Rainbows Gift Shop were the chosen winners. New owner Mrs Mandy Kent was delighted as it is her first Christmas in the shop. Congratulations also to Ismay Evans at Ismay’s who was chosen to receive the 2nd prize for her fabulous window.
