As a part of the Christmas festivities shopkeepers in Ashton were invited to enter a competition to find the best decorated shop front in the town centre. The three Ashton ward Councillors were asked to judge the entries which we did last week.
Today ( Thursday 21st December) the Ashton Councillors together with Emma Taylor, the Ashton town centre manager from Wigan Council, presented the prize and winner's certificate to Mike Dykins the manger of Goldrush Amusements. My congratulations go to Goldrush for creating an attractive and very festive display.
I would like to thank Emma for organising the competition and hope that next year there will be more shop fronts for us to judge.
