Shoppers have cast their votes and chosen Ely Cathedral Shop as this year's winner in the Best Christmas Window Display competition.

Shop manager, Brenda Covell, chose a nativity scene for one window of the High Street shop and Father Christmas with his sleigh for the other to show the two sides of Christmas.

The hand-made displays have already prompted many appreciative comments from shoppers calling into the store.

Brenda said: "I think it's really nice to take part in the competition and I wish more shops would do so. I'm delighted about winning and I'm already thinking about next year's display.

"We'd like to give a special 'thank you' to Pete Hotine for once again making our display."

Ely Standard reporter Ian Ray presented Brenda with the trophy earlier this week.

Second place was won by Simply Flowers in Market Street and third place by Cherry Hill Chocolates in the High Street.
