WW1-themed windows among Windsor and Eton Christmas display competition winners

First World War-themed displays in its windows have won Talents the People's Choice Award in the Windsor and Eton Best Christmas Display Competition 2014.

The pottery retailer in Church Lane, Windsor has commemorated the centenary of the conflict with its displays representing Christmas on the Home Front 1914 and Christmas in the Trenches 1914.

Judging for the competition took place last week and it was Talents that received the most public nominations in the contest.

It also won the prize for Best Small Display.

“We really had no clue whether we would win but I was secretly hoping that we would as I think the windows are fantastic” said shop manger, Tracy Kent.

“We were very lucky that one of our retail assistants, Louise Millington, is a qualified window assistant and she spent months making all the props for the display.”

Best Medium Display was won by home ware retailer Vinegar Hill in St Leonards Road.

“This is great news for the store,” explained store manger Emma Coventry.

A toy-filled window landed Daniel department store in Peascod Street the award for Best Large Display.

Christmas is a hugely exciting time of year, with a lot going on in the store we always try to replicate this in our window displays,” said  joint managing director, Trudy Durkin.

“We are delighted to accept this award and would like to thank all of the customers who voted.”

Businesses in both towns were encouraged to get their decorations out for the chance to win a coveted trophy, with the public asked to vote for their favourites.

Winners were announced at a late-night shopping event on Thursday, December 18.
