MDL Marinas is proud to announce the winners of its 2010 MDL in Bloom competition, which rewards the ‘green-fingered’ teams across its 21 marina sites.
The marina teams entered a variety of garden displays and floral arrangements into the competition’s five categories – best borders and beds, best hanging baskets, best tubs and containers, the ‘X’ Factor and best overall marina display.
Scooping the ‘X’ Factor title and the coveted best overall award was Shamrock Quay Marina in Southampton – receiving an engraved trophy and gift vouchers for its marina team.
Best borders and beds was won by Woolverstone Marina in Ipswich, best hanging baskets by Mercury Yacht Harbour on the River Hamble, meanwhile MDL’s Hamble Point Marina took the award for best tubs and containers. All category winners received gift vouchers for the marina teams, plus a trophy to display at the marina.
Jon Eads, Managing Director of MDL’s Marina Division, commented: “Our marina teams work so hard throughout the year to make sure that the marinas always look their best, so it’s great to be able to recognise and reward all the hard work and effort that goes in to achieving this with the MDL in Bloom awards.
“Across our marina network we have a diverse collection of open and green spaces, some marinas have large and beautifully landscaped grounds, others have small but equally immaculately presented outdoor spaces which have been transformed using hanging baskets, tubs and containers packed full with wonderful floral displays.”
Nicola Walsh, Area Manager for MDL Marinas in Southampton, based at Shamrock Quay Marina, said: “I’m delighted for the team at Shamrock that they have been awarded the top prize for this year’s competition.
“We have a great team at Shamrock who all work really hard to make the most of our outdoor space at the marina making sure that it always looks clean, tidy and inviting for our berth holders and visitors. The marina has lots of lovely displays, which always makes Shamrock feel a home from home for our visitors.”
