Christmas Window Competition 2017

Town’s top window displays are praised

THE Porthcawl Chamber of Trade, supported by Porthcawl Town Council, ran its annual Christmas shop window competition.

The 2017 winners were presented with certificates and prize money by Cllr Robert Lee, president of the Porthcawl Chamber of Trade and the Mayor of Porthcawl, Cllr Lorrie Desmond Williams.

The competition was open to all traders in the town and this year’s entry provided some difficult judging decisions, but after much deliberation the winners were announced:

Second place – Age Cymru, John Street.
Third place – Guttridge Florist, John Street.


Highly Commended certificates were also awarded to the following:

Traveland, Lias Road
Tenovus, John Street
Porthcawl Butchers, John St.

Finally, the ‘Most Original Design Certificate’ was awarded to

The Print Centre, Lias Road.
