12 days of Christmas voting to decide who is The Greatest Christmas Garden Centre team of 2017

The ultimate accolades in GTN's Greatest Christmas Awards, sponsored by Gardman, are The Greatest Christmas Garden Centre Teams, as voted for by garden centre customers.  Voting starts now and runs through to Christmas Eve, December 24th and to be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is download the posters and voting forms below for in-store voting and add our voting link to your facebook, twitter or website to get customers voting on-line too!


As we head towards the busiest weeks of the year it’s time to ask your customers to vote for you as The Greatest Christmas Garden Centre Team.

There's no entry charge for taking part in The Greatest Christmas Garden Centre voting but we are looking to raise funds during November and Decemnber for Greenfingers.  If you'd like to make a donation to Greenfingers, please use this link.

GTN Xtra and the Greenfingers Team are also looking for great new Christmas fundraising ideas for Greenfingers, so get your creative thinking caps on, let us know what ideas you've come up with and you never know, you may be inline for a special award.

So, what are you waitiing for?  All you have to do is download the voting posters and voting postcard artworks from GTN’s Greatest Christmas Awards Dropbox 2017 folder or these links:

Print them out and get your customers voting.  They can post them to our Greatest Christmas Awards office or you can create "Post your Votes" here boxes for votes to be posted in store.


You can also ask your customers to vote for you on line this year, just paste this link:  into your social media pages, e-mail newsletters and websites.  The link will take them straight to our voting form.  Last year we received a record number of on-line votes and we expect the number to grow even further this year.


The closing date for votes, both on-line and posted in-store is 4:30pm on Christmas Eve, 24th December 2017.  If you collect votes in-store, please send them through to us on a regular basis to help with the counting and then make sure you send your final batch of votes off directly after Christmas.  


The Greatest Christmas Awards will this year be presented during Glee@Spring Fair at a special Greatest Awards Breakfast Reception on Tuesday 6th February 2018 so the cut off for final votes to be received and counted in our office is Monday 8th January 2018. 


Remember to look through all your votes before you post them to us - your staff will love to know all the wonderful things your customers say about you as they vote for The Greatest Christmas Garden Centre Team.


When all the votes are counted, size of centre and number of staff are taken into account, so there are as many chances of small and medium sized centres winning this ultimate Christmas accolade as that of a big centre.


If you have any problems downloading any of the files please e-mail and we’ll send you them by e-mail straight away.


The Greatest Awards team is out meeting as many teams as possible this festive season. We are doing our best to get to you all but just in case we don't make it please send us photos of your team and your displays or grottos.

Good luck!
