  • Services to include estate agents, banks, building societies etc.
  • Personal services e.g. hairdressers, nailbars, tanning studios etc.

The judging took into consideration the following criteria:

  • Frontage – first impressions
  • Cleanliness and lack of clutter on doors and windows
  • Window display
  • Cleanliness in front of premises including pavement
