Everything came up roses for a florist after its shop scooped the top prize in both categories in a Christmas window decorating contest.

Demco, on Hamilton’s Church Street, won Best Christmas Window, which was selected by a panel of judges, and the People’s Choice award, picked by a public vote, in the Hamilton City Council-organised event.
