This year’s best dressed window competition was judged by Rachel Cronin (Felixstowe Chamber of Commerce Executive committee and Margary & Miller) and Chris Ozanne (Felixstowe Chamber of Commerce and Evening Star) on Monday 19th December and both were very impressed by the standard of windows entered.
It proved to be a difficult task as some stores had obviously taken a huge amount of time and effort into entering into the festive spirit, Judging of displays were not just restricted to the town centre but out of town retailers and organisations who had specifically asked to be included.
The winner will receive a Trophy, formalised presentations will be made by Andrew Rowdon, Chairman together with sponsors from the Evening Star.
In 2008 Felixstowe Chamber was approached by a local resident, Mrs Jane Bolton; she wished to donate a shield for the best dressed Christmas window display. Her desire was to bring ‘a little more Christmas spirit and encouragement into the town’ following tough times being experienced by retailers.
