The Result Post

Thanks so much for all the pics of your fabulous Christmas Trees, it filled our hearts with such joy to see that your Festive Spirit is so strong (and stable) despite the political shenanigans that have dominated the news in the run up to our favourite time of year.  We have  bucked the high street trend of doom and gloom and really enjoyed all the positivity from our wonderful clientele and community.

We carefully considered all the entries and we all were unanimous that this entry from Claudia was a clear winner of the £50 voucher.  We loved the sense of humour, the vintage baubles mixed with new, we even spotted our very own Amy Winehouse bauble too.


We awarded 2 other winners £25 vouchers each too.  The first was this stunning entry from Bobby.  We recognised many of the iridescent clear and frosty white baubles which have obviously been collected over many years......but what made it so special was the 'Love is Love' rainbow heart from this years collection which I think was a super stylish and genius contrast to the frosty white subtlety. 


Finally there is this entry from Arabella, we have awarded her tree a worthy winner of our 2nd £25 Voucher!  It's the sheer fun of the whole scene, including the intriguing exit right of a 'real' reindeer????  

We'd love to see his face Arabella!


Thanks again to everyone who sent us pictures, we have really enjoyed seeing our decorations and treasured decorations used to such creative effect.

Have a very Happy Festive Holiday.

Christmas Tree Competition - £50 up for grabs!

25th Anniversary Christmas Tree Competition

Have you decorated your Christmas Tree?  Now that the season is well and truly festively underway we have launched our annual competition.

We love seeing all the creativity and festive fun inspired by our Christmas Decorations each year.  There are two £25 vouchers up for grabs and a £50 voucher, star prize as well.

We have really enjoyed the innovative community art projects this year (have you seen the Whitehall Park Living Advent Calendar) and we know that not everyone has space for a large tree.  With that in mind this year we are awarding extra points for imagination and creativity.  So as well as Christmas Trees - do send us pics of your alternative Christmas creations, themes and displays.

You can fill in our contact form and attach pics here.
