A number of businesses in Ambleside have taken part in a Christmas competition this year that is now relying on public participation.

As part of the Ambleside Christmas Lights event, 14 shops and businesses have decorated their windows in a festive style.

Those who vote for their favourite will then have a chance of winning shop vouchers or four tickets to next year's Santa Cruise.

The establishments taking part are: Ambleside Tavern Pub, the Apple Pie Shop, the Bath House, Detail, Devonport and Scott, Doi Intanon, Esquires, Fat Face, Freshers Café, Herby Jack's, Lily Lou's, Lucy's on a Plate, the Rock Shop and the Walnut Chip Shop.

You can visit the website or the businesses' social media pages to view their windows, pick your favourite, and potentially win big.
