Business owners in Richmond have created seasonal displays in their windows for the annual window dressing competition.

The winners have now been selected for the competition organised by Original Richmond, Richmond Business and Tourism Association.

Marcia McLuckie, chair of the association, who organised the competition, and Lisa Potts, managing partner of Hunton and Garget, who are members, found judging to be difficult.

This story continues after the adverts:


Marcia said: “There were many good displays.

“People had put in a lot of effort to make their windows look good for Easter shoppers and visitors.

“Lisa and I would have liked to give prizes to everyone. It is interesting to see how many small businesses are able to put on quality displays to showcase their businesses.”

Joint winners of the Retail (non-food) category were The Flower Studio and York House.
