THE best dressed windows and lighting displays for shops and businesses in Easingwold have been announced.

A competition to find the best displays was organised by Hambleton District Council’s Vibrant Market Town Team with Easingwold Town Council and the Wold Class Business Network.

Carolyn Frank, business development manager for the Federation of Small Businesses who judged the competition said, “What a difficult job I had.

"The windows especially were incredibly difficult to judge, there were five or six truly excellent efforts who could have all been winners.

"It is great to see the town is looking so festive and really welcoming to shoppers.”

The winner of the best dressed window display for the second year running is drinks retailer ‘Tipsy Fox’ and the winner of the best Christmas lights went to delicatessen ‘Ee By Yum’.
