Christmas Social and Networking Event

Ballymena Borough Chamber of Commerce and Industry held its annual Christmas Social and Networking event in the Adair Arms Hotel on 13th December. There was an excellent turnout of Chamber members and guests.

This is always an informal evening and Ronan McCann, Chamber President welcomed everyone.

He then went on to present the trophies and certificates for the 2017 Christmas Window Dressing Competition. The three prize winners were:

Leaf Designs, Galgorm

Fred Funk, Ballymoney Street

The Nest, Broughshane

Ronan went on to say that the judges were very impressed with the high standard of the windows this year and that it had made their job very difficult. Because of this the judges also awarded two Highly Commended Certificates to –

Willow Beauty, Broughshane Street

Eclipse Nursery Store, Broughshane Street

Congratulations to all the winners!

A presentation was also made to the NI Hospice. A raffle was held at the 2016 Business Excellence Awards and an excellent £3250 was raised. Chamber would like to thank the following businesses who donated prizes for the raffle: Galgorm Castle Golf Club: The Tullyglass House Hotel: Chris and Audrey Wales: Galgorm Resort and Spa: Ballymena BID: Bank of Ireland and Michelin Tyres.

Thank you to the Adair Arms Hotel – the hospitality as always was excellent.
