Chamber held its annual Christmas Social and Networking event on 13th December in Montgomerys. There was an excellent turnout of Chamber members and guests.
Chamber President Raymond Ruck welcomed everyone and then presented the trophies to the winners of the Christmas Window dressing competition. The three winners for 2011 were:
- Cameron Retail Furnishings, Broughshane Street
- Leaf Designs, Galgorm
- Sallys Floral Studio, William Street
The standard this year was exceptionally high and a “Highly Commended” certificate was awarded to Designer Home Interiors from Broughshane,
Congratulations to the winners.
Raymond then presented a cheque for £3560 to the NI Hospice, the Chamber’s charity for 2011/12. This was the proceeds from the raffle which was held at the gala evening of the 2011 Ballymena Borough Business Excellence Awards. Chamber would like to thank everyone who donated prizes for the raffle – Michelin Tyre PLC, firmus energy, NI Hospice, Tullyglass House Hotel, Barrs Butchers & Deli, Galgorm Resort and Spa, Alexander Bonar and Co Ltd and Millside Restaurant (Gracehill).
We would also like to thank the staff in Montgomerys who helped to make this another very enjoyable evening.
