The best interior decorations crown went to Vanilla Sky with Jurassic Windows finishing second ahead of Granny Gothards.

A spokesman for the chamber of commerce thanked everyone who entered adding: “Whilst there are countless Christmas movies most are as easily forgettable as the one before.

“However the entrants came up with some very innovative ideas and the judges were highly impressed both with the dressings but also how the theme was worked around.”
