Flower shop scoops Earby festive window title

JUDGES at Earby Parish Council's best-decorated shop window contest had a tricky task on their hands with more displays than ever before in the running.

This year, in a bid to include more shops, the council created two categories - one for large display areas and the other for small or restrictive areas.

The honour of best-dressed window in the larger display area category went again to "2lips" flower shop in Victoria Road, with Wineline off licence taking second place and West Craven Insurance Services, third.

In the second category, for shops with a smaller or restrictive display, the crown went to S&B Fruits in Water Street, with Jamie Pitt Butchers coming a close second and Country Ways Pet Shop third.

Judges said this year's windows displays had been better than ever and thanked everyone for taking part and for giving Earby a special festive boost.
