AN AYRSHIRE family's incredible Christmas decorative display has added a towering new addition - a giant teddy bear at its front entrance.

The festive extravaganza, which was named the third best in the UK by judges of a prestigious Illumination Street competition in 2021, is putting in the finishing touches for this year's eagerly anticipated display.

The Clark family open the front gate of their West Kilbride home, the Manor House, every December to allow the public to enjoy the spectacular illuminations - created using more than 150,000 lights, giant Christmas trees, inflatable Santas, sleighs and reindeers.

And now they have a massive teddy bear to greet all visitors to this year's festive showing.

A post from the Clark family on their Facebook page said: "We would like you all to meet The Manor House’s newest member.

"The 2023 teddy bear - even better we would like your help to name him.

"Please pop your suggestion on our Facebook page, and the winning name will be put with him for Christmas 2023."

The Clark family have already turned West Kilbride into a 'tinseltown' by opening a Christmas shop in the centre of the village.

Tis the Season at 65 Main Street opened in September 2022, but the venture has proved such a success that owner Cameron Clark is now throughout the year.

When Cameron opened the shop he described it as a 'gamble' - but it's one that has very definitely paid off.
