Glendale Paints, in Bondgate Within, have won the Tour of Britain window display competition run by Alnwick Town Council, which was judged on Monday by the Mayor of Alnwick, Councillor Lynda Wearn. Their winning display won them £100 and two tickets to the start in Berwick on September 9th, which were donated by Northumberland County Council.

2nd prize went to the Northumbria Pets in Bondgate Within, who won £50 whilst joint 3rd prize went to Alnwick Tourist Information Centre in The Shambles and The Salvation Army Charity Shop in Bondgate Within who both won £25.
Councillor Wearn said “I was very impressed with the standard of all the displays around the town. I chose Glendale Paints in 1st place as their display made a real impact using products from their shop in a very creative way. The design highlighted several locations on the Tour of Britain route through Northumberland, including the Cheviot Hills which were made from tins of paint and Alnwick Castle made from rolls of wallpaper”.
The Mayor continued “I must say a big thank you to those businesses who took part in the competition and commend them on their efforts”.
The cycle race will pass through Alnwick town centre on Monday September 9th so the decorated windows will help to give riders, their support crews, and visitors, a real welcome to the town.
