No one was more excited than Beth Davies when she found out she’d won a prize.

 

The glass trophy for Best Dressed Shop was awarded to Mr. and Mrs. Laurence Mitchell, after escaping unscathed when the Mayor dropped it. It will be safer in their hands than in the Mayor’s.¬† ‘Careful with that Steve…..’ as he dropped it.
