Yesterday was Thursday 26 October 2017 and it’s a date to remember. It’s certainly a date we will never forget because that’s when your votes made us the winners of the Herald City and Waterfront Awards. Because of you, our loyal and supportive customers, the great team here at The Cutting Garden was named the best hair salon in Plymouth.
City and Waterfront Awards
The City and Waterfront Awards are presented once a year at a glittering black-tie ceremony. This year, it was even more impressive than ever. Held at the new Crowne Plaza on Plymouth Hoe, we were surrounded by tables of glamorous and excited guests and nominees. Around 500 attendees watched as 14 award categories were announced and awarded after a fabulous 3-course meal.
Altogether, 40,000 public votes had been cast. Paul Burton, Editor of the Herald noted that there was a record number of entrants, and added that this year: “The competition was fierce.”
We Won, Thanks to You
When it came to our category, we were on the edge of our seats. We wanted to win of course, but there was a lot of tough competition, so until we heard the words, we couldn’t really expect to win.
But then we heard: “…and the winner of Best Hair/Beauty Business is The Cutting Garden!” and we were in shock.
Could it be true? It must be! And then, there we were on stage being presented with the award and having our photo taken.
It was a moment to be cherished forever.
Afterwards, all we could think of was how grateful we were to everyone who had nominated us, and voted for us. So here it is again from all of us at The Cutting Garden:
“Thank you for nominating us, voting for us and believing in The Cutting Garden!”
The Cutting Garden is one of Plymouth’s longest-running salons and we believe that the secret of our success is you: our clients. Every day, we do our best to look after you and give you the best advice and treatment we possibly can.
Our owners, Caroline and Bill Roose had this to say:
“We are proud of our team of professionals at The Cutting Garden and winning this award is thanks to their skills and dedication to constant improvement. They are absolutely committed to making The Cutting Garden the best hair salon in Plymouth.”
Did We Know We Would Win?
We didn’t have a clue who would win, but perhaps we could have read the mystic signs. Sitting at the table we noticed a few:
We were seated at Table 33.
We were listed on page 33 of the awards programme.
And The Cutting Garden has been in Plymouth for 33 years.
Spooky? This close to Halloween, I’m not making any guesses, but I’m sure of one thing: we are absolutely over the moon with this magical award.
Time to Celebrate
Yes, we took a little time off to celebrate that night, but the next morning the salon was open again at the usual time. Because we know that winning this award is down to our wonderful clients.
The Cutting Garden has been a Plymouth favourite for 33 years, and now we’re looking forward to carrying on that legacy for another 33 years.
If you want to pop in and take a look at the award, please do; and while you’re here, why not book in for your next appointment? If you haven’t been to The Cutting Garden before, now is the time to find out why we’ve been voted the best hair salon in Plymouth.
