Sweet shop staff earn customers' praise to win wedding award
12:40pm Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
STAFF at a sweet shop are celebrating as they scooped an award for supplying weddings after they were praised by customers.
Glen and Lyn Neilson, of Sweet Greetings, Shildon, are celebrating after they won the Sweets, treats and wedding flavours section of the Northern Wedding Awards.
The shop based on Church Street offers sweets and a Victorian sweet cart service to newly weds to form part of their wedding day.
This is the second year that the business has entered the award. Last year it was a losing finalist in the new business section.
The judges asked former customers to write reviews of the service and they were positive of the service provided by Sweet Greetings.
Mr Neilson said: “It’s very pleasing to have won. People have come forward to send in reviews and they have been very positive of us.
“Shildon is a small town and we’re trying to put it on the map and to provide a good service.”
A trophy was presented to the staff at Sweet Greetings for winning the Northern Wedding Awards.
Sweet Greetings has also provided sweets for functions which were organised by the cast and crew of TV soap Emmerdale.
The business is now in the running for the English Wedding Awards competition. The winners will be announced later this year.
