Leanne Webb, manager of Zoe’s Florist, said: “I know that there are many stores around Crawley that put up some really fantastic decorations, so I was over the moon to hear that our store was to be picked as winner!

“Throughout the year we try to create window displays that have a special meaning and provoke thought in our customers and passers-by. I personally just love Christmas and this year we decided to go with the theme of ‘The Polar Express’ – a modern children’s classic that really embodies how special Christmas should be for children. I have found it wonderful seeing the local school children pass by the display, their faces full of excitement and wonderment.

“I want to thank Henry again for picking Zoe’s Florist as his Festive Crawley Christmas Shop Window competition winner and I look forward to the prize of a personal tour around Parliament for myself and my staff.”

Runners-up were Chickidee in County Mall and Bodyworks Day Spa in Church Walk.
