Christmas Window Winners Announced

Christmas Window Winners Announced

  • By: Ringwood Town Council

Congratulations and certificates of achievement were presented to winners of the Ringwood Christmas Window Competition this week by Town Mayor, Cllr Gareth DeBoos. The overall winner was “With Grace”, a home décor boutique who beat stiff competition from over 30 local shops, businesses and community organisations to be voted the winner by members of the public.

Greyfriars Community Centre wowed the youngest members of the community with a wonderful Minions themed display and were voted as the favourite Community Organisation. Champions Barbers and FORIS (Friends of Ringwood Infants School) were very worthy runners up.

The competition was organised by Ringwood Town Council as part of their Ringwood Winter Wanderland initiative, which aims to encourage people into Ringwood Town Centre to see the hugely popular town lights, Christmas tree and support the wonderful local shops, businesses and community organisations. Over 1000 votes were cast in the competition. Cllr DeBoos said, “the Winter Wanderland has been a huge success this year in supporting our High Street especially after a difficult year with extensive roadworks surrounding the town. Huge congratulations to the winners With Grace, who only moved to the town a few weeks prior to Christmas.”

Emma Betsy, owner of With Grace said, “We are utterly thrilled and thank you to all who voted for us. All the shops in Ringwood made such an effort and it was wonderful looking at them all.”
