Including Awards (for us), Free Teddy, Dragon Boat Festival, Pound-A-Plug Day , and much more ...
|We recently attended a Function organised by the Wolverton & Greenleys Town Council, where we received an Award for the Best New Business in Wolverton 2005 (Picture of award) This is a great Honour and it will be sitting very proudly in the shop where everyone can see it. We are on our 7th Month in Business and so far so good. The people of Wolverton and surrounding areas have been very good to us and we aim to continue to offer the kind of service that has made us win this award.|
As you will read in this newsletter we haven't been sitting still and waiting for business to come to us. we have been out there in the community and further, talking to local businesses and people about our services and products. We have recently been involved in the Dragon Boat Festival at Willen Lake. No, we didn't get a team together but we supplied the winning teams with Bouquets and we got a mention in the Programme. Plus we have recently been on the radio again. Horizon Radio and Plug for a Pound Day (22/7/05). We donated a £1.00 each and for every Bouquet sold over the weekend we donated £1.00. The money Raised will be put to good causes in and around Milton Keynes via the Community Foundation.
Apart of our Community commitment we have given Vouchers to local Schools as a Raffle prizes for there Summer Fetes and Supplied Balloons and the Gas for the Secret Garden Opening on the 17th July. Approx 700 balloons where let free on the day with tags from Children from the Local Schools. Wonder how far they have gone?
Secret Garden Open Day 17th July 2005
For those of you who don't know where this is in Wolverton or haven't heard of it, that's why it's a Secret?
A group of energetic people have spent a lot of time and effort restoring grounds just behind Electrolux and next to the Canal and Station in Wolverton. They have done a great Job making an area that was once houses and grounds for The Station Master at Wolverton Station into a peaceful place to be. We supplied the balloons and gas and they where blown up in the remains of the Cellar and let off at 3pm. We had a few problems, like the weather was very hot and we really blew the balloons up too early. So we had to rush in the last hour before the launch blowing up more balloons. We did it and they took off. If you can find the Garden go and have a look. Ask us for directions if you're not sure where it is.

Pound-A-Plug Day 22nd July 2005 The Community Foundation and Horizon Radio organise this event every year. It gives a chance for all types of Businesses to Plug themselves on the radio for a Minimum of £1.00.
We raised £20 over two days by taking a £1.00 off each bouquet sold over the weekend (Friday & Saturday) and donating that to the Cause.
The Community Foundation supports Local charities and Organisations that apply for Grants from as little as £500.
We are glad that we took part in this event and will continue to do so. For more info either contact Horizon Radio or the Community Foundation
Dragon Boat Festival Willen Lake on the 3rd July It's the first time that we have got involved in this event. No we didn't get a team together but we supplied the Flowers for all the Winners on the Day. Seven Bouquets in all, from the Overall Winner to the Fastest Team. The day was very hot and was very exciting, they had one boat that sunk after a collision, Cheers went up as they sank.
A Great event and a good day out for all the family. We hope to be involved next year, maybe a boat crew? but definitely the flowers. If you are interested in next years event Contact the Dragon boat club at Willen or Gable Events.
