Westpac shop window the best

THE Westpac branch in Lismore has won first prize in the 2010 Lismore Cup shop window competition.

A combination of hay bales, jockey silks, fashionable hats, formal dress wear, trophies and flowers caught the judges' and the publics' eyes.

The Westpac staff have won eight all-inclusive tickets for VIP guest access to the Lismore Turf Club's Winning Circle Marquee at today's XXXX Gold Lismore Cup, valued at $1000.

Westpac was also the winner of the Peoples' Choice public voting category, by a narrow margin over Chandlers.

Peoples' Choice voter Angie Windsor, of Dunoon, was the lucky draw winner from all the entries and will receive two complimentary Lismore Cup tickets and enjoy guest status at the Winning Circle Marquee.

“The display in the Westpac bank foyer was colourful and extremely well-thought out,” commented judge Rob Walker, manager of the Lismore Shopping Square.

“It was fantastic to see that all the counter staff were dressed up in race-going attire.”

Fellow judges Brenton Shalders and Stephen Nelson agreed.

“The overall standard of the entries in both the City Centre and Lismore Shopping Square was really high,” Mr Shalders said.
