A MADDINGTON home has won the City of Gosnells’ 2018 Safe City Christmas Lights Competition.

Philip Clegg, of 39 Westfield Street, won the $500 first prize for having the best private residence after wowing the judges with a display complete with gingerbread home, Santa sleigh, photo booth, window display and interactive decorations.

Runners up prizes were given to the displays at 72 Forest Crescent and 11 Consulate Court in Thornlie and 12 Meyrick Way in Langford, while Consulate Court residents took out the $1000 prize for Best Decorated Street.

The home at 5 Schooner Street, Canning Vale took out first prize in the First Time Entrant category.

Gosnells mayor Glenn Dewhurst said the winners were chosen based on originality, colour, interaction with the community, layout and overall effort.

“The Safe City Christmas Lights Competition encourages community members to share the spirit of Christmas, while getting to know their neighbours and their local neighbourhood,” he said.

“Thanks must go to everyone who entered the competition this year, and to all those who visit their displays, for spreading joy among our community.”
