Things I Like, 4 Homes and Potburys came out winners after being judged by Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce and Herald photographer Terry Ife.

Things I Like won in the best one window category, 4 Homes won in the best two window category and Potburys won the best store window category.

Mr Ife said: "The winners were deserved because I think they went over and above to put the effort in.

"The festive windows made the high street a lot more Christmassy."
