All four Haskins centres were recognised in the top 15 ?Centres of Excellence?. Ferndown ranked 11th and West End ranked 14th
Haskins won the ?Worrall Cup? for best marketing campaign. This was for its ?Big Reindeer Giveaway?
Haskins scooped first, second and third prize for ?Best Garden Products Retailer? category.
Warren Haskins, chairman, became an honorary member of the Garden Centre Association.
Lisa Looker, brand director commented: ?We?re thrilled we’re recognised across many categories for all our centres.
“The awards are testament to the hard work of the teams at each centre.
“We?re particularly pleased to have two centres of excellence, with both Roundstone and Snowhill in the top 10 centres. All four of our centres were included in the top 15!?
Lisa added: ?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. We provided them with a donation of cuddly toy reindeers.
?We hoped that the reindeers would make a difference to children who found themselves spending Christmas in hospital.
“We enjoyed giving back to the community and helping spread festive cheer to those in need.
?We were very pleased that our blogger festive afternoon tea also made the final three for the Worral Cup.?
The awards came through the GCA audit process, across a whole number of scoring categories.
These include first impressions, facilities, customer services, inspiring displays, great food, product presentation and innovation, social and environmental ethos, and many more.
