Falmouth’s businesses got into the festive spirit with a cracking display of colourful and inventive decorations as part of the Town Team’s annual festive window competition.

This deliberately coincided with the Festive Weekend, thereby ensuring windows were looking their very best for the hugely popular and well received festival, also organised by the Town Team.

Cllr Steve Eva, Mayor of Falmouth said: “It was a tough call, with so many brilliant window displays on show. Despite the challenges being faced by the business community through Covid, many took part, which was so refreshing.

"The windows also really added to the hugely successful Festive Weekend and we have received lots of positive comments about how great the town looked over the past few days. Well done to one and all”

The Falmouth BID funded the competition and Richard Wilcox, Falmouth BID Manager added: “Having such invention and creativity within our business community is a real asset. It enhances our offer greatly and gives another reason to visit and spend time in our special town.

"The more engaged our business community is with the Town Team, the more effectively projects, events and initiatives can be run.”
