Local Business Shortlisted for the Family Business of the Year Awards 2019

St Bridget Nurseries in Exeter has been shortlisted for the Family Business of the Year Awards 2019. These awards were introduced in 2012 to celebrate the family business sector and the contribution that family firms bring to the UK economy and the communities in which they operate.

The awards are organised by Family Business United, the award-winning magazine and resource centre for the family business sector. St Bridget Nurseries was nominated for the awards and following a desktop review is now on the shortlist of finalists for the South West region along with 13 other companies. They are now all in the running for one of the Family Business of the Year Awards 2019.  Judging takes place in May with the winners being announce on Thursday 6th June at an award ceremony in London Mayfair.

Tammy Falloon, Managing Director said, “This was a wonderful surprise and we are all very proud. St Bridget Nurseries was founded by my late great grandparents in 1925 and so to be shortlisted for this award in our 94th year of business is a great way to recognise all the hard work and dedication of my ancestors as well as all the many amazing staff who have supported and helped us over the decades.”

Other than the national and regional award, St Bridget Nurseries are in the running to win the people’s award too. Customers and fans are invited to vote for the family garden centre online at
