Tony and Kath Whitrow have been named as the first winners of North Petherton Town Council’s Christmas Decorations Competition and are pictured receiving the cup from the Town Mayor Cllr Bradford, whilst fellow judges Cllrs Julian Taylor and Richard Ives look on.
Individual lighting displays have become an important part of the Christmas experience, helping to make it a special time of year for everyone. The Council agreed in November to recognise the efforts that people go to and present a cup for the best display in its area.
Cllr Bradford, who provided the cup, was very impressed with the standard and variety of decorations. “It was a very difficult decision”, he said. “There were very impressive efforts across our whole area, and although Tony and Kath’s display at Crosswell Close, North Petherton was the unanimous choice of the judges, there were others that we felt also deserved to be Highly Commended”.
Highly commended displays were:
Stockmoor 9 Romney Road, 4 Sika Walk.
several other houses on Charolais Drive Angus Way and Channing Drive.
Wilstock. Houses in Lotus Drive on the corner of Jasmine Close. Houses in Lillianna way and Barberry drive were absolutely first class.

Fordgate. Chapel Road. An outstanding display by nearly all the houses.
