Not just any Christmas window display - but a Marks and Spencer display - was among the winners this year as Blackpool’s town centre stores got into the festive spirit.

The Church Street retailer won the prize for the best display by a national chain, while the award for the best independent shop display went to Uniform and Leisure on Clifton Street.

Amanda Reynolds, store manager at Marks and Spencer, receives the 'best dressed Christmas window' trophy for national stores from town centre BID manager Eileen Ormand surrounded by members of the display team.

Blackpool Mayor Coun Peter Callow chose the winners in the annual competition organised by Blackpool BID (business improvement district).

Town centre and BID manager Eileen Ormand said: “Blackpool BID has been running the Best Dressed Christmas Window competition for 10 years and the windows get better year after year.

“Well done to our two winners and a big thank you to the Mayor Coun Peter Callow for taking the time to select them.”

Marks and Spencer manager Amanda Reynolds said: “We are thrilled to have won. The Marks and Spencer’s in-store team work very hard to make our Blackpool store special and it is so rewarding to have their hard work recognised with the presentation of this trophy.”

Uniform and Leisure’s manager Debbie Willets said: “We are delighted to receive this trophy for the independent best dressed Christmas window award.

“It is fantastic to be recognised in this way. I made all our Christmas window decorations myself and I feel that all my efforts have really been noticed.”
