RETAILERS in Prestatyn decked out their frontages in Welsh and St David's Day themes for an annual competition.

This is the 3rd year the Prestatyn Town Council have ran the window dressing competition. The contest, supported by Menter Iaith Sir Ddinbych, aims to create a "positive vibe" in the town.

A total of 21 shops took part. The winners were as follows:

Category A: The William Morgan took first; Specsavers second and Peter Large took third.

Category B: Celtic Cars was named first place, The Sewing Room and Froyo Emporium at Shabby Pats's.

Cllr Grery Frobisher, mayor of Prestatyn and Meliden, joined Nia Morris from Denbighshire Menter Iaith Sir Ddinbych to judge the businesses.

He said: "Nia and myself walked round the town and viewed each shop window entered. We then returned to the town council office to discuss what we saw and look at the pictures we had taken.

"We looked at how much effort had been put into the display as well as what related to the St David's Day theme. We then visited the winners and those placed second and third in each category."

The competition was split between small and large businesses.

A spokesperson for the town council added: "This year the response was greater than last year."
