The Hollies team of 48 were filled with anticipation and excitement as they donned their black ties and boarded the Routemaster red double-decker, on route to The Marketing Cheshire Annual Awards 2013 at Tatton Park last night.  Nominated for 5 awards, there was possibly going to be glimpse of a trophy, but to come away with 3 was beyond our expectations.

Then Phil and Ed Cowap (3rd generation and Directors of The Hollies Farm Shop) were awarded Contribution to Cheshire 2013, a real accolade and achievement for 2 brothers who work tirelessly to strive to be the best and provide the best experience for customers and the team.  Through their determination, The Hollies Farm Shop has become a destination for local, national and even international visitors to Cheshire.  Their team are so proud of Phil and Ed, as they all stood shoulder appluading their achievements as the brothers went on stage last night.
