“Considering we changed the event, there has been a fantastic response from both traders and the public,” said town mayor John Matthews.

“The coffers of not only my own charities but the other groups and good causes have all benefitted from today.

“I must thank Tesco and the Lions for their most generous support.

“And well done to those high street traders for their efforts in seasonal window dressing.”

Bathroom Desires was chosen as the best dressed window.
