A patriotic window display has scooped a charity shop top prize in a town competition.

Manager Molly Folan of Ecco charity shop in Epping High Street was presented with a certificate for her shop’s St George’s Day display last Thursday (April 23).

Mayor Barbara Scruton, who presented the award, said: “The effort that went into the winning shop display was amazing.”

She added: “The standard was very high this year.

“They were so imaginative it was difficult to choose the winner which is why we had to give four certificates of merit.”

D. C. Poulton funeral directors, the Sue Ryder charity shop, Lanes Dress Agency and Haven House Children's Hospice charity shop all also received certificates.
