Brush & Comb hair salon has been crowned the winner of this year’s Ely Standard Best Dressed Window award.

The competition, which dates back to the 1950s, rewards one business every year that has the brightest and most festive window display.

This year the salon on Newnham Street scooped the award for the third time.

The salon, formerly known as Michael’s Brush & Comb, won the award in 2009 and 2010, and staff members Julie Palfrey, Heidi Underdown and Julie Sanchez were delighted when reporter Seb Pearce presented them with the Ely Standard shield on Thursday.

Heidi Underdown said: “I’m so shocked. The shop took all day to decorate so I’m very happy.”

Last year’s winner was Cherry Hill Chocolates, of High Street.
