As Christmas shoppers bustled in Lerwick town centre yesterday the best window in Shetland’s main town was announced.
Meanwhile the Elf Trail, where children had to find the elves in 12 different shops and report whether they were being naughty or nice, came to an end.
Ninian gift and knitwear shop on Commercial Street retained the title of best Christmas window with a wonderful effort from the staff.
They were presented with the shield and certificate yesterday afternoon. More than 300 people voted in the online poll which saw a close battle with first place changing hands several times during the month.
Ninian received 60 votes with new contenders, Peerie Isles, coming a close second with 51 votes and an even closer third was Westside Pine with 50 votes.
A random winner was chosen from all the voters, and Liz Hunter from South Whiteness receives a gift token to spend in Ninian.
The Elf Trail ran through December and almost 100 people took part. The winning entry, again picked at random, was Frankie Tait from Lerwick. A gift token for Aa Fired Up is on its way to Frankie.
Emma Miller, project manager of the local Bid company, said: “Commercial Street was busy with shoppers on Monday. Living Lerwick would like to extend a thank you to everyone who took part in the Christmas competitions and shopped locally this Christmas. Every local sale makes a difference to our community and economy.”
