Bishop’s Castle shops were invited by the 2014 Carnival Committee to create a display marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.
In centre place at the butcher Andrew Pugh’s display is this photograph of his uncle Ernest Pugh, killed age 23 in the last year of the war.
The Carnival Committee invited Rosa James and Drusilla Cole to judge a competition of the displays. Rosa said, “Altogether there were 19 traders in Bishops Castle who took the time to research and find some interesting and striking material for their displays.
“Some of the windows were very moving, and included some original local documents. We felt that a lot of care and creativity had gone into this competition”.
1st: Medlicott Snows
2nd: Dudley Building Society
Highly commended: Pughs, Halls, Arts and Artisan Books.
Window displays are difficult to photograph because of reflection. They are much more interesting in real life!
