The winner of Uckfield’s best-dressed Platinum Jubilee window competition is Rowland Gorringe.
Their window showed photographs of Her Majesty The Queen across her seven decades of reign. The photograph of the window received the most likes on Facebook securing first place in the competition. In second place was The Flower Shop with its spectacular crown and in third place the wonderful red, white and blue display in St Peter and St James’ Hospice’s Home window.
The first prize winner will receive a special glass plaque and second and third winners will receive certificates which will be presented by The Mayor and Deputy Mayor in the coming weeks.
The competition was run though Facebook with Uckfield residents and visitors voting for their favourites by ‘liking’ the photograph of the window. Over 35 windows in the town were decorated for the Platinum Jubilee and over 150 votes were cast with ‘likes’ on Facebook.
The Town Clerk, expressed how absolutely wonderful it was to walk the town centre to photograph all of the windows, and see the creativity of each of the businesses. Uckfield has always generated fantastic community spirit, and the colour and variety of the window displays to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, were particularly exceptional. It really added to the celebrations!
