BELLA Boutique and The Salty Dog picked up top prizes for the best dressed shopfront as part of Northwich In Bloom.

The competition saw businesses adorned in floral displays in a bid to win votes.

Hundreds had their saw through Northwich BID, with Bella Boutique winning from the shops and The Salty Dog in the other half of the competition.

While all entrants were commended, CRS Consultants and Crafty Stitches made up the top three shops, with Stateside and Barons Lounge runners up behind The Salty Dog.

Northwich BID manager Jane Hough said: “I’d like to say well done to both Bella Boutique and The Salty Dog for coming out on top but credit must also go to each and every business that entered the competition.

“Their designs and creations were superb and it’s brilliant to see our retailers embracing another community event of this nature and really getting stuck in.”

The top three in each category all win a trophy, with winners also receiving a bottle of champagne to celebrate in style.
