Many local shops and businesses in Ringwood entered into the spirit of Christmas and participated in the Christmas Window Display Competition.

The judging of the competition was carried out by Cllr Tim Ward, Town Mayor of Ringwood, Adam Skirton, Pastor of Poulner Baptist Chapel and Katy Grubb, Student Advisor.

All were very impressed with the high standard of the displays, which gave them the difficult task in deciding a winner, but the judges are delighted to announce that the chosen winner for 2017 is Arcade Flowers.

Their display was an excellent example of creativity and individuality.

Thank you to all those entrants who took part in this festive community event and for brightening up the town with your Christmas windows.
