Industry winners announced – Good Florist Guide members sweep board

In what was a fabulous evening of celebration and dancing, the winners in both the Educational and Industry Awards were announced by Nikki Meader and Simon Stirling of Direct to Florist at the British Florist Association Annual Awards night held during their Fleurex exhibition.

Here at Florist Magazine we send our warmest congratulations to everyone with a huge shout out to our Good Florist Guide members Cloud Hill Flowers in Chelmsford and The Bloom Room in Millom who took the top places in both the Wedding and Retail Florist of the Year catagories.
