A display featuring poems, poppies and a ‘silent soldier’ has won Axminster Royal British Legion branch’s annual remembrance shop window competition.

The team at Trinity House, in The Square, was awarded a silver salver for its poignant arrangement, which was designed by Sasha Jones.

The competition was launched by the RBL seven years ago and has gone from strength top strength – some 18 shops took part this time.

Axminster RBL branch chairman David Warner went along to present the prize to Trinity House store supervisor Clare Ennals and window designer Sasha Jones on Wednesday (November 14). Also present were Valerie Warner and RBL supporter Yvonne Taylor.

Said Mr Warner: “I would like to thank all the shops that took part and hope that it will continue.”

Second prize went to the Hospiscare shop in South Street, with Wagg N Purr pet shop, in South Street, third and the Archway Bookshop in Church Street finishing in fourth place.
