South Marston in Lights Event – Competition Results

SMILE 2020 winner

The wonderful array of displays of Christmas lights across South Marston this year has made the judging of the competition very difficult. However, after much deliberation, by a team of three judges, the results are as follows:

1st Place – 1 Chapel Lane – for an enchanting, colourful and varied display, with delightful details, such as the little penguins.

2nd Place – The Limes, Thornhill Road – a striking display which conveys the feeling of a winter wonderland.

Runners-up, in no particular order:

Ferndale Cottage, Highworth Road – for providing a bright and colourful welcome to the village;

Manor Lodge, Thornhill Road – a lovely and varied display, making the most of a relatively small space, which also looks very attractive during the daytime;

Pigeon House Farm Bungalow, Chapel Lane – a panoramic display of lights, which provide different, but equally pleasing views, from each direction;

1 Pinehurst Cottages, Thornhill Road – a vibrant and colourful display, which was considered to be particularly appealing to children;

6 Bell Gardens – a very colourful, high impact display which makes good use of the trees and bushes.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped South Marston to sparkle this Christmas!
