Yesterday, Thursday 23rd November, we experienced the elegant surroundings of the Lancaster Ballroom at the Savoy, London.
The Garden Media Guild Awards, is an unmissable event, it celebrates the best of horticultural communications, recognising talent and skill across garden media professionals. We were delighted to attend as finalists for the Website of the Year Award 2017, along with four others, including the winner Gardenersworld.com - a worthy winner with their stand out website, a particular favourite feature being the plant finder, appealing to all visitors.
The event was a delight, starting with champagne and catching up with old friends in the River Room followed by an exquisite lunch in the Lancaster Ballroom. The ceremony kicked off with Gyles Brandreth introducing the awards with wit and entertainment, followed by Ann-Marie Powell presenting the first round of awards. From there, we spun through the categories enjoyed more drinks and finished with chatter and laughter, made new friends and picked up our Alitex sponsored goody bags as we left the Savoy.
We would like to wish congratulations to all the winners and the finalists for their hard work and commitment to the gardening world.
