Letchworth’s Best Dressed Jubilee Window crowned

JUDGES gave their stamp of approval to a town’s Best Dressed Jubilee Window yesterday (Wednesday).

Postal Pursuits in The Arcade was crowned the overall winner in the town centre competition organised by Love Letchworth and the Comet to get in the spirit of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Owner Thomas Humfrey also won the most innovative category after decorating one side of the shop with portraits of the Queen throughout her life and creating a colour mosaic from stamps on the other side.

The most humorous window title was awarded to The Christian Bookshop in Leys Avenue, while scooping most patriotic window was Aspidistra Florist in Station Road.

The final award was decided by a public vote on Facebook with Funkydory in The Wynd being named as the people’s favourite.

Judge Michael Paterson added: “A special mention must go to The Wynd traders who really got into the jubilee spirit and made such a huge effort. Congratulations to all the winners and especially to Tommy for his outstanding design.”
