Morwenna Work of Ninian said: “We're really chuffed to have won this year. It makes all the effort worthwhile and we'd like to thank everyone for all their lovely comments on our display.”

Gary Bain, Chair of Living Lerwick said: “It’s great to see that the public are really taking part in the Best town centre Christmas window display competition. This is only the second year we’ve done it. The number of votes received has more than doubled and the amount of effort that has clearly gone into some of the window displays this year is amazing. The standard is very high.”

The competition also had a prize for one voter picked via an online random number generator. Alan Doull won and will receive £25 vouchers from Cee & Jays and LHD Marine Supplies.
