THE Fenland Branch of The Royal Society of St George are disappointed again this year at the lack of Wisbech shops entering into the spirit of the celebrations and decorating their shop windows for the occasion.

Press officer Peter Dennis said out of 30 shops advised of the window display competition, only six took part.

“It is obvious that the majority of shop owners are not interested in celebrating this historic day,” said Mr Dennis.

The shops which took part were: A Bit of a Do Party shop in Hill Street, Lillymays Florists in High Street, Sue Ryder and the British Heart charity shops in the Market Place, Paper Box card shop in the Horsefair and The Salvation Army charity shop.

The judging took place over the weekend and the winning shop - The Salvation Army in Union Street - was presented with the trophy on Monday.

Second place was Sue Ryder and third place was Lillymays who both received certificates. During the day, Society members dressed in costume in the town to promote the day.
