As the winner, they will receive a framed certificate presented by the Mayor, and a package of promotional activity.

The runner-up was beauty salon the Mellow Room in North Camp, with Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe in Farnborough coming a close third. Both of these stores will receive a certificate and a bottle of champagne.

Local resident volunteers visited a huge number of shops over the Christmas period, gathering photos of over 200 stores displaying decorations. We created a short-list, with a first, second and third chosen for each of the three retail centres - Aldershot, Farnborough and North Camp - before an overall winner was chosen by the Mayor of Rushmoor, Councillor Sophia Choudhary.
