Hereford has had its say in the Best Xmas Shop Window Awards, with The Children’s Bookshelf and Principality Building Society voted the public favourites in the Independent and National categories, respectively.

Now in its fifth year, the awards, organised by Hereford City Life, provided opportunity for the public show their support for local businesses during the festive season. A great variety of Hereford businesses took part, submitting images of their decorated store fronts to be added to the Facebook album for the public to cast their votes. The contest ran from mid-November to the 18th December with over 1600 votes cast. 

In addition to the People’s Choice vote, the Best Xmas Shop Window Awards held a separate Judges’ Choice vote with shortlisted businesses reviewed in person. This year’s Judges: Deputy Mayor, Councillor Jacqui Carwardine and Colin James of Hereford Voice. Windows were assessed based on their creativity, innovation and overall festiveness, with The Children’s Bookshelf picking up another award and Oxfam Books & Music claiming first place for the Nationals. 

“The Awards are a fantastic Christmastime tradition in Hereford that we have been very pleased to deliver for the last five years,” commented Rhiannon Burns, Hereford City Life Marketing Manager. “We are very grateful for everyone who showed their support for Hereford’s businesses by voting, as well as the judges for giving us their time.”
