A family business which has been in Wrexham town-centre for 125 years has won this year’s Best-Dressed Christmas Window competition, organised by Wrexham Council.

Hugh John Jones Butchers, in Henblas Street, fought off stiff competition from 33 other premises to receive the most votes from shoppers.

Proprietors Giles and Louise Jones moved from the Butchers’ Market to their Henblas Street shop in 2010.

Giles said: “We are delighted to win the competition and would like to thank all the customers who voted for us and who have helped to make our business so successful this year.”

Councillor Rodney Skelland, Lead Member for Regeneration and Corporate Governance, said:

“This year’s competition was the most popular ever, with nearly 900 votes submitted by shoppers. All the shops who took part are to be congratulated on the effort they put in to help to make Wrexham an attractive and enjoyable place for Christmas shopping.”

Giles and Harvey Jones were presented with their prize, a meal voucher at Dao Siam Thai Restaurant, Charles Street, by the Mayor of Wrexham, Councillor Ian Roberts.

One lucky Wrexham shopper, Mrs Sarah Henshaw, won a bumper Christmas Hamper when her vote was drawn out.
