IT’S beginning to look a lot like Christmas around Cirencester where displays have been put up in store windows in an attractive show of festive spirit.

The market town features a diverse range of independent shops which have been spreading Christmas cheer to residents.

In one of the photos Jesse Smith & WJ Castle Butchers and Delicatessen, one of Britain’s oldest butchers recently re-opened and has embraced tradition with meat on display in the window.

In another, gowns are displayed with elegance in the window of Rosella Wedding Gowns, using less decorations to enhance their window.
