Neilston’s Window Wanderland returned at the weekend for a second year with 84 households taking part.

Following the resounding success of the 2020 initiative, the free event once again asked people to make a window display using art materials such as tissue paper.

Among the artwork created was an underwater scene featuring a killer whale in a window on Neilston Road, and a tribute to Olaf and Sven from the movie Frozen.

On Duncarnock Avenue, a picture of Santa guiding his sleigh over houses featured, while The Grinch also made an appearance on another festive window elsewhere in the village.

It was organised by five local parents, Cat Train, Aisha Pollock, Emma Murdoch, Jayne McLaren and Anna Kerr, who joined forces once again for the event.

Cat, who is also the founder of growing project Incredible Edible Neilston, and who paid tribute to the group with her window, said: “It was beautiful. Some of the windows were incredible. There were loads of folk out walking past people’s windows.

“Less people registered this year, but obviously last year we were still in the midst of a lockdown. We are thinking we are going to run it again, but maybe at the end of January or February because Christmas is a busy time for folk to be decorating windows.

“Ideally you would have days when you all make stuff together in a community space but because of Covid we have not been able to do that so it’s been lovely getting the messages back.”

While the Window Wanderland officially ran over December 11 and 12, residents are encouraged to keep their displays up during the Christmas period to help spread some festive cheer.

The event was made possible thanks to funding from Neilston’s Windfarm Legacy Fund and the Neilston Community Fun Day.
