A GARDEN centre group has won several top awards.

Haskins was successful at the Garden Centre Association Conference.

Roundstone at Angmering and Snowhill in Felbridge were recognised in the top ten centres of excellence.

Roundstone came fifth and Snowhill ninth.

Haskins was awarded the Worrall Cup for best marketing campaign for its Big Reindeer Giveaway.

It scooped first, second and third prize for Best Garden Products Retailer.

Warren Haskins, chairman of the group, was made an honorary member of the Garden Centre Association

Brand director Lisa Looker said: “We’re thrilled to be recognised across multiple categories for all four of our centres.

“The awards are testament to the hard work of the teams at each centre.

“We’re particularly pleased to have been awarded two centres of excellence, with both Roundstone and Snowhill in the top ten centres, and all four of our centres included in the top 15.

“It was a wonderful surprise to take home the marketing award for our reindeer campaign.

“During the run up to Christmas we teamed up with a selection of charities and organisations and provided them with a donation of cuddly toy reindeers.

“It was hoped it would really make a difference to children who found themselves in the unfortunate position of spending Christmas in hospital.

“We really enjoyed giving back to the community.”
