Ninian scoops Living Lerwick’s best Christmas window prize
The Ninian shop on Commercial Street in Lerwick is the winner of Living Lerwick’s best town centre Christmas window display competition.
Businesses in the town centre decorated their windows with a festive theme to encourage the public to vote for them before last Monday.
The public vote has now closed and Ninian’s windows were the definite favourite with 91 votes or 32 per cent of the 286 votes cast. The Shetland Soap Company was second with 70 votes and Westside Pine third with 64 votes.
Morwenna Work of Ninian said: “We’re really chuffed to have won this year. It makes all the effort worthwhile and we’d like to thank everyone for all their lovely comments on our display.”
Living Lerwick chairman Gary Bain said: “It’s great to see that the public are really taking part in the best town centre Christmas window display competition.
“This is only the second year we’ve done it. The number of votes received has more than doubled and the amount of effort that has clearly gone into some of the window displays this year is amazing. The standard is very high.”
The competition also had a prize for one voter picked via an online random number generator. Alan Doull won and will receive £25 vouchers from Cee & Jays and LHD Marine Supplies.
