Hastings Week - October 19th - Judging the windows in High Street & George Street

Hastings Old Town Carnival Court judge the Old Town Windows


Saturday 19th saw a very wet afternoon but this didn't deter the girls from judging the shop windows in High Street and George Street. The Theme was 'Colours of the Rainbow' and this year's colour was red, so the windows display had to include an element of red. The winner of the Pam Brown Trophy was 'Equilibrium' in George Street and the runner-up, winning the Ray Goode Trophy was Serenity Hair & Beauty in High Street. Quite a few of the pictures were spoiled by getting rain on the camera lens and that included the Tattoo Parlour in George Street that was 'Highly Commended' The standard was very high and it was very difficult to choose the winner.
