NICHOLAS Austen Hair Salon’s amazing ‘interactive’ display was voted by the public as their favourite Pumpkin Path shop window.

Visitors to the path were asked to choose their favourite shop window, and the winners were presented with their certificates the following day by Knutsford Town Mayor Cllr Peter Coan.

The two runners-up were Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe and Knutsford Nails and Beauty.

Amelia Naylor of Nicholas Austen said: “We are delighted to have won the public vote for our interactive Halloween window.”

New for this year was an informal Best Dressed Spook Competition judged by the hired spooks, with the winners in each age category presented with their certificate on the night.

The costumes were so good there were two adult winners and two winners in the six to nine age category.

Sandra Curties, town centre manager said “This was the sixth Pumpkin Path and it keeps on growing in popularity.

“It is truly overwhelming to see how Knutsford comes together for this event.

“We are truly thankful and grateful to everyone who volunteered – whether Hosts, or Lions, shops, choirs, businesses or dancing troops. This event would not be able to run with them.”

The event was supported by a range of businesses, organisations and voluntary groups, including Knutsford and District Lions, Knutsford Hosts, Event Buddha, J&S Kings and Knutsford Multi Academy Trust, Roberta Beauty Refined, Brassiere Blanc, Fine and Country, Techno Type, Saks Hairdressers and Knutsford Nails and Beauty.

The Pumpkin Path winners’ prizes were donated by Hal Whittaker, Brasserie Blanc, Waitrose, Gusto and original organiser and event sponsor Julia Chard of Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe.
