An incredible 48 businesses have entered the competition to find Altrincham's favourite Winter Window.
Organised by Altrincham BID, who produce VisitAltrincham.com, the annual event has had a record entry.
You can vote in the Winter Windows ‘People’s Choice’ competition by liking your favourite on Altrincham Today's Facebook page. The winner of this part of the competition will be announced next week.
The Winter Windows were judged by Nick Dolan from Alan Stevenson Partnership, who are also sponsoring the competition, and Sue Aldridge, CEO Altrincham & Sale Chamber of Commerce.
Yesterday they toured the town and have selected The Foot Company as their overall Judges' Choice winner.
The Railway Street business's display tells the story of Santa’s sore toe across three windows!
The judges also wanted to give a special mention to three other entries - Altrincham Barbers for their incredible display based on A Christmas Carol, Tile by Tile for their window with moving cable cars, and Full Circle Funerals Partners for their sensitively created display.
Beyond Barriers also received a special mention for their Wellbeing Advent Calendar, which will see them posting every day in December on Facebook with a daily gift of love, encouragement and online wellbeing practice.
Sue Aldridge said: “I really enjoyed judging the Winter Windows with Nick Dolan. Having been part of the judging on a regular basis, I was amazed at the standard and originality this year.
"All the windows were of a very high standard, and it is a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful community event.
"Many of the windows have some incredible detail including The Foot Company, so come into Altrincham and take a look at them all.”
Nick Dolan added: “The Alan Stevenson Partnership have been based on Victoria Street in Altrincham since 1979. We’re very proud to call Altrincham our hometown and the many businesses we deal with are much more than just clients to us.
"We jumped at the opportunity to sponsor this year’s Winter Window event and support the fantastic work the BID team put into promoting our unique and bustling town. We’re proud to be one of many great independent businesses and the feeling of togetherness shared by all is what makes Altrincham the place to be”.
Mandy White, Altrincham’s BID Manager, added: “The festive Christmas lights and beautifully decorated windows add a magical touch to the town, making it the perfect place to celebrate and embrace the spirit of Christmas in Altrincham."
