Jane Littlewood, from the Visit Cleveleys website which organised the competition, said: “In Cleveleys a number of small groups like the Rossall Beach Group, the Coffee and Chat group, schools, and more all overlap to create a really great community of local people who really love where they live.

“I want to get this sense of community into Cleveleys town centre so that shopkeepers and shoppers have a shared sense of ownership and pride in our town centre and work together to keep it a vibrant shopping destination for many years to come.

“The competition is a festive way of getting everyone to work together – it doesn’t cost anything over and above the trimmings which they’d normally buy and I made it easy to enter.”
