Flowers by Pauline have been awarded a trophy for the best dressed window in Rugby for a second year running.

The competition, organised by Rugby First, was judged on Saturday as part of the St George’s Day celebrations.

The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance charity shop in High Street came second in the competition, while Herbert Brown in Market Place picked up the third place.

Aftab Gaffar, managing director of Rugby First, said: “A lot of businesses take part in the competition. It all adds to the St George’s Day festival. It’s very difficult for the Mayor to judge so she goes into each shop to speak to the people behind them to see what there inspiration was.”

The winning window display at Flowers by Pauline in Regent Street featured ten things that represent England including Margaret Thatcher, an England football shirt and the Beatles.

The air ambulance shop has dressed it window with red and white balloons and St George wielding a shield.

Herbert Brown put a dragon inside its shop window which was sat on some gold.

Staff at Flowers by Pauline were presented with a certificate and a trophy.

Mr Gaffar congratulated all that took part.
