Sewerby Grange were the victors in the Tour de Yorkshire Best Frontage/Best Dressed Window competition.

The competition, ran by the Bridlington Tourism Association, had a high number of entrants for judges Chad and councillor Margaret Chadwick.

Sewerby Grange won the competition for their efforts in displaying a painted blue and yellow Nissan Micra car as well as a big yellow Y and 16 blue bikes.

Darren Broom runs the business with his wife Amanda and they received a cheque for £50 which they donated to the melanoma department at Leeds Hospital.

Darren said: “I wanted to do something to stand out from the crowd, but I never thought we would win anything. My friend who works at a scrapyard managed to get me the bikes and the car for me to decorate. It was fantastic for the village to see so many people around and putting the area on the map.”

Darren is currently finishing painting a dump truck which he plans to station next to the Micra for a couple of weeks for people to view.

Runner-up in the competition was the Spinnaker Hotel, ran by the Tourism Association’s president Bob Hillery and his wife Carole.

Councillor Margaret Chadwick said: “The quality of the entries was very, very high. Had everyone in the town who had decorated their property or business submitted an entry, the judging would have taken several days.”

Happy Bathdays, Beckie May’s, White Rose Florist and The Royal were all Highly Commended and earned a framed certificate.
