This year’s Christmas Window competition saw many entries
The Western Isles Lottery has announced this year’s winners of the annual awards presented for the dressed windows around Stornoway Town Centre.
The winners are usually presented with their cups and shields at the lights switch-on but this year were visited by Emma Henderson and Shona Macleod of the Lottery Team to present them with their awards.
The Charlie Nicolson Shield for Best Charity Shop Window Display and the McCormack Cup for having the Most Creative Display were both awarded to the Blythswood Charity Shop on Kenneth Street. The two shop fronts look onto Kenneth Street and Church Street and manager, Lesley Macdonald was thoroughly deserving of the awards having meticulously hand-crafted each piece on display using only recycled materials.
The staff at Delights celebrated receiving the Northern Constabulary Cup for the Most Festive Window Display which included the creation of a lit up hot air balloon.
Harris Tween Hebrides won the shield for the Most Original window display with a stunning model of Elsa from the children’s Frozen movie.
The final award of the season, The Stornoway Rotary Club Shield, went to the Crown Hotel for the Best Hotel display, complete with a free Santa’s grotto for all children who had visited .
