To sprinkle some extra festive cheer we invite all shops and businesses in the town to get creative with their tinsel and deck the halls with boughs of holly to enter the 2017 Ashbourne Best Dressed Christmas Window Competition.

We’re delighted that the competition will be judged by the Mayor and Gareth Butterfield, Senior Journalist, Ashbourne News Telegraph. Judging will take place between the 8th and 10th of December, simply decorate your window to be in the running.
