Garden Centre Association members win Christmas display awards

The GCA has awarded its members with the best Christmas displays and is looking for members' best supplier.

The Garden Centre Association (GCA) has selected its Christmas best display winners. They are Barton Grange at Brock in the over £4m turnover category and All in One in Manchester in the under £4m turnover category.

The GCA is also asking members to cast their vote for the associate member of the year award.

People can nominate the company they feel has been most efficient, helpful, or professional or offers the best product - the winner will be announced at the GCA conference, which takes place from January 27-29 at the Crowne Plaza Heythrop Park near Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.

GCA chairman Peter Burks said: "At our conference, we will be announcing a number of prestigious awards.

"One of the awards is Associate Member of the Year and we want our members to decide who the winner will be. We all know that a good relationship with suppliers makes life as a retailer much easier, so this is a great opportunity for us to recognise the hard work of our associate member suppliers.

"If you would like to vote for one of our associate members, please email to request a voting form. These can be emailed back to Pat Adams. Please note only one vote per garden centre is allowed."

Voting will close on 22 January.

Headline speakers include Wayne Hemingway.
