JUDGES have been out and about in Devizes trying to decide which shop has the most festive window.

A total of 36 businesses entered the contest organised by the Devizes In Bloom committee and now the top three have been announced.

Cositas Bonitas, Dorothy House Hospice shop and The Giving Tree have now been named as the top three but will have to wait until today for the winner to be announced.

In Bloom chairman Zena Robson was delighted with the standard of entries and hopes shoppers will complete the whole festive window trail.

She said: "Devizes businesses always step-up to a challenge – especially when there are champagne and chocolates as top prizes.

"Each entry has a numbered poster in its window and they all have lists of other participants so you can follow the trail. Please do support our independent businesses in the town and enjoy the windows."

The judging was undertaken by Mayor Andy Geddes, Mayoress Chrissi Geddes and Bob Gilmore president of Devizes Chamber of Commerce.
