Steve Mathieson, Acting 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 third 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.”
