With over 60 Sudbury town centre businesses taking part in this year's Sudbury Christmas Window Display Competition and over 870 people voting, this year's festivities was an overwhelming success.
The winner was decided by 50% public vote and 50% the decision of a panel of judges, with Sudbury's Mayor Robert Spivey, offering a special Mayor's Prize to a deserving winner.
The public voted via an online voting page, created by thebestof Sudbury, through the Suffolk Free Press and paper voting coupons from the Sudbury Tourist Information Centre.
Last night the votes from the judges and public were counted and the winner of the 2019 is *VIRTUAL DRUMROLL*
No 72, North Street
No 72 delighted judges and the public with their take on Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol, with a giant teddy bear dressed as the protagonist Scrooge.
No 72 is a charity that helps local family and the community, offering support and help. You can read more about them here on their website
As well as being the judges favourite, they were also a massive hit with the public. The combining scores meant they were the clear winners.
However, our runners up also deserve a mention:
Lipstock & Locks & Asters, both brand new businesses to Sudbury and Amor Interiors impressed the judges and public, as did Rees Cafe and Angelo Smith's Christmas village window display.
The Mayor also nominates a special Mayor's Award and this year, that goes to Coversure Insurance on Station Road. Lee Parker and the team had created a mini Sudbury scene in their window, featuring key buildings such as The Town Hall, Mill Hotel and Library.
I'd like to thank everyone who took part, voted, judged and gave their time to such a festive community event
