Window Wanderland winter trail success

It was another successful year for Portishead’s Window Wanderland as residents took to the streets to admire the many displays across the area.

There were almost 100 homes and businesses taking part in this year’s trail, which went ahead following the success of last year’s inaugural event.

Portishead Window Wanderland was organised by local resident Karen Haynes to lift people’s spirits during one of the coldest times of the year.

Karen has confirmed that plans for next year’s trail are underway and has earmarked February 8-9 for the event.

Karen Haynes said: “I was wowed and delighted by the amazing displays of Portishead for the second year of Window Wanderland. We had close to 100 Windows taking part this year and a definite increased presence on the High Street.

“It was great to see North Weston taking part, hopefully it will continue to spread wider next year.

“Particular mention must go to the display at Portishead Methodist Church which was incredible.

“One of my favourite moments was driving down the High Street on late Friday afternoon seeing The White Collection, Flagship Boutique and St Peter’s Hospice all midway through putting their displays up ready for the weekend. I felt very proud of the event and for Portishead in supporting such a great community event.

“As a family, instead of watching TV we spent two lovely evenings exploring our streets and spending time together, making a dark February weekend one that was lit up by ideas, colours and smiles.”
