A gift shop has scooped Hailsham’s Best Shop Window Christmas Display award.
Millie’s, in the High Street, wowed judges with their front window display which incorporated a traditional snow theme with an array of snowflake decorations, lights and snow-covered Christmas trees to get people in the festive spirit.
Shop staff members were surprised when Environment Hailsham’s Richard and Susan Grocock dropped in to hand out an award they hadn’t even entered for.
“I’m delighted to be here in Hailsham and to be supported by the town,” said proprietor Sue Mills. “I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and I look forward to meeting more of you in the New Year.”
Displays on the shortlist included the Demelza charity shop, Focus Opticians Eye Centre and Fine Floristry.
