Saintfield In Bloom 2016 – The Winners!

Saintfield Development Association’s own competition for the best floral displays for both small and large businesses has taken place and the winners are:

Large Premises:-
First: R. Savage & Co.
Runner-up: Second Saintfield Presbyterian Church

SDA member Anne Walker presenting Noel Gibson of R. Savage & Co. with their certificate.

Small Premises:-
First: Masseys of Saintfield
Runner-up: Town and Country Antiques

Judges Nicky McGarry (of Flowerish Design) and Michael Quinn (of Cumran Landscapes) presenting Masseys of Saintfield with their certificate.

Nicky and Michael were very impressed with the overall standard and it should be noted that the SDA’s own floral displays were not taken into account when judging took place. Our sincere thanks go to Nicky and Michael for taking the time out of their very busy lives to come to Saintfield and to Anne McCandless of Norr & Brown for providing afternoon tea.

The Green Committee of the SDA are most grateful to everyone in Saintfield who helped by giving donations, having their own floral displays, either on their premises or homes, watering, dead heading and all the numerous tasks involved. A special thank you goes to the First Presbyterian Church, not only for their generous donation but for allowing the use of their railings to show off our floral displays. Thanks also to those who told us that we were doing a good job as they were passing by. It makes it all worthwhile.
