GIMA Awards 2015 Gala Evening Photos

This year’s event returned to the Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales where just under 400 guests enjoyed a fantastic evening, hosted by a very lively Rufus Hound.

Burgon & Ball were announced as winners of the Sword of Excellence for a second year running, this time with their best selling Weed Slice.  Having won two of the product categories and two marketing awards, their winning entry into the Garden Tools, Machinery and Implements was deemed the overall winner by this year’s panel of judges.
