On Thursday 9th December 2010, we attended the Marshalls Regional Award Ceremony/Roadshow.
We were nominees in five different categories, bringing one award away for 'Best Use of Ethically Sourced Fairstone' which we were really chuffed about.
We have spent the last two years trying out different patio paving layouts and were rewarded for our endeavours.
We thoroughly enjoyed the roadshow and look forward to a prosperous 2011.
