Devon Environmental Business Initiative......

I entered the awards after lots of arm twisting.....

I knew that lots of huge and top businesses entered......like the National Trust and Paignton Zoo (who won last year)......

So when we were shortlisted in the Environmental Goods and Services category I was amazed....

Off we went last night to the awards ceremony to collect our certificate for being a finalist....

But to my total shock we won the category....

We then watched the other categories being presented with their awards and thought wow!

And then the announced the overall winner for 2009.......

And it was 'The Woolly Shepherd'........and there was a picture of me and my logo up on the big screen......gobsmacked!

Thanks to everyone who reads the blog and supports us by buying our products......this is just amazing!
