Thank you to all who have decorated houses and businesses again this year, bringing added colour, sparkle and light to roads across Sandgate.
We can only offer a few prizes, despite many being worthy, and our judging panel went out on Tuesday 22nd to make the all important decisions.
From our local businesses there are a number of great window displays and decorations, but it wouldn’t be a Sandgate Christmas without The Dog House winning an award for their decorations, as they are always stunning! Joining them are Little Oaks Nursery, Sandgate on Coolinge Lane with a lovely mix of lights and other decorations. Also thanks to many of the households in Coolinge Lane which is really looking good!
Moving to the household prizes, the judges really wanted to mention Enbrook Valley where so many houses have got a stunning display: it’s our own Regent Street! However, we couldn’t not award all at 9 Highland Close an award again this year: they won a prize last year, and have upped their game again this year! And joining them with a display with EVERYTHING, from lasers to Christmas trees, snowmen, lights and even Santa waving through a window are all at 31 Alexandra Corniche: congratulations!
Judges decisions are final, and probably wrong, but that’s the way of these things!
Again, thanks to everyone who has put up lights and decorations on houses, shops, in windows, projections and more. It brings cheer at Christmas to all in Sandgate: thank you. Happy Christmas, one and all.
