SHOPS across Shotton decorated their windows to celebrate all things Welsh.

Cllr Gary Cooper and Cllr Gillian Brockley, along with pupils from Ysgol Croes Atti, took to the high street to judge the competition for St David's Day.

Shops were invited to take part in the event to celebrate the Welsh Saint and Welsh culture.

Cllr Gary Cooper, chair of Shotton town council, said: "I was invited to go along to do the judging but I thought I would leave it up to the children.

"They were absolutely brilliant and threw themselves into it.

"Unfortunately, not as many shops took part as we would have liked but the children enjoyed it. That's the main thing, that the children had a great time."

Pupils Shylah Oldfield, Archie Wainwright-Smith, Azariah Darlington-Shields, Seren Hughes and Mair Parry judged the displays on Wednesday, March 6 and certificates were given to the top winners.

The competition was organised by Maiwenn Berry of Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam.

Taking first place was Al's Toy Barn, second was Cancer Research and KK's Hair and Beauty came third.
