Best Dressed Window

The Town Council have run a competition in conjunction with their lights switch on, for local businesses to take part in a best dressed window challenge.

Many of the shops in Alfreton chose to take part and it was a very difficult decision for the judge to make.

Wendy Comins of South Normanton Area Food Bank, the Town Mayors chosen charity, has kindly chosen the winner after visiting each shop one afternoon. ‘It was not an easy job because each one was beautifully decorated, many in a style in keeping with the shop itself. I chose ‘Pierce of Art’ on Central Road. The display reminded me of an old fashioned Christmas with stockings hanging on the fireplace, a blazing fire and presents around the tree’

Well done to the staff at Pierce of Art; Lesley, Elizabeth, Jess, Lucy and Abbey, they will be presented with their prize by the Town Mayor, Councillor Mary Kerry next week.
