Businesses in Ceredigion were rewarded for their St David's Day window displays, bringing a 'sea of colour, creativity, and visual Welshness' to the towns of Tregaron, Llandysul, and Cardigan.

The town centres bloomed, as businesses competed in the Cered: Menter Iaith Ceredigion’s window decorating competition judged on originality and their reflection of the Welsh festive spirit.

Siriol Teifi, Cered's competition organiser, said: "It was encouraging to see so many businesses across the towns taking part in the competition."

The competition was used as a vehicle to engage with businesses in the communities and promote the support Cered can provide, like the free translation contact line, Helo Blod.

The winning businesses, including Cardigan's Crafters Cwtch, Aberystwyth's Thatch, Llandysul's Teifi Law, and Tregaron’s Caron Stores, were each awarded a Cered challenge shield to keep for a year.

Images of the decorated windows can be found on the Cered Menter Iaith Ceredigion's Facebook and Instagram page and in the gallery at the top of this article.
