NEWS FOR 2017: 
Our Trees & Wreaths Won 5 Awards! Oct 2017
We are super proud (and still in shock!) to annouce that we have won a total of 5 awards at this years prestigious BCTGA awards. We won 3 awards for our trees and 2 for our wreaths so we are off to Downing Street... again! This will be our third trip. We will be supplying a wreath for the front door and our first ever tree to go indside the house of the Prime Minister at No. 10 Downing Street.

Due to being super silly busy last year, especially at the weekends, we have made a few changes for 2017 which we hope will makes things run a little sooner.....
NEW TILLS - We have finally entered the 21st century and have invested in some new super duper speedy tills with barcode readers to help make the throughput at the tills much quicker and more seamless!
MORE LOO'S & NAPPY CHANGING FACILITIES - We have also decided to hire some portaloos to help cope with the super busy weekends. We wil have 2 Portaloos, 1 normal toilet plus 1 disabled toilet with baby changing facilites.

We are over the moon with receiving yet another award at the British Christmas Tree Growers Association annual awards ceremony. Our tree won 'Best Other Spruce 2106'.

So we are delighted to receive this award.
