Leprechauns gave Lloyd Waters the luck of the Irish as the Dunmow store came out triumphant in this year’s shop window competition.

The Market Place store’s Dublin-themed window impressed the judges of the competition in the run up to Saturday’s Dunmow Carnival, which this year carries a theme of cities.

As well as the leprechauns, there was a Gaelic welcoming message and a glass of Guinness in the orange, green and white display.

Carol Waters, owner, said: “We are delighted. We did put a lot of effort into our display.”

Bakewell, also in Market Place, came second with a display which included a London bus created in icing and the Eiffel Tower made of macarons.

The judges said: “Although there were fewer entries than in previous years the standard remained high and it was good to see new businesses in the town entering the competition.”

The Dunmow Broadcast has teamed up with Perkins Garage in Rayne ahead of the carnival to give readers the chance to win a free MoT for their car.
