THE artist behind the Winter Wanderland trail, coming to Bishopston next February, says that she has had a "great response" so far.

Mum-of-two, Lucy Reeves, is calling on local residents to open their curtains and create a display which reflects a "magical world".

She says that she wants to give residents a reason to get out of their homes, wrap up warm and enjoy the displays lighting up the neighbourhood.

Lucy has confirmed that the Bishopston Garden group are planning something and one woman is going to display 1000 paper cranes in her window.

Competitions will be run, with categories such as the most surreal display, and the most detailed.

Windows are to be judged by Bishopston's Green councillors, Tim Malnick and Daniella Radice.

Prizes, such as vouchers and sewing kits, will be supplied by local traders.

A map highlighting the magical trail, which is taking place on February 7, from 5.30-8pm, will be available to residents.
