Town Council, will be announced on Burnham-On-Sea.com during the
next few days.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We have been impressed by the quality
of the entires in this year's competition. There were some very
good new entries and the regular competitors improved on their
already high standard from previous years."
only disappointment was that there weren't more entires, especially
given the quality of the displays we saw on some properties that
had not entered the competition."
prizes are awarded for the best displays in several categories
in each town - best individual display (£25, cup and certificate),
runner-up individual display (£10 and certificate), best
group entry (shared shield and certificates).
is also a prize for the best business window (£20, cup and
certificate) and runner-up business (£10, cup and certificate).
The prizes will be presented at a council meeting in January.
