Situated in the magnificent surroundings of the historic Royal Institution of Great Britain, the luxury British knitwear label Plum of London attended The Good Web Guide’s Awards ceremony on Monday evening. The shortlisted companies were treated to bubbles and canapés whilst the names were read out in a plethora of categories from Arts/ Culture, Business, Education, Gardening, British and Positive Living to name but a few!
We were delighted to have been shortlisted in the Positive Social and Environmental Impact category alongside Dimpsey.co.uk, ‘who help busy people get quality time’. They’re listed as a ‘Chic Escape’ in Net-a-Porter’s online magazine ‘The Edit’ so they obviously provided some quite fierce competition! After several companies were announced ranging from Beyond-Bespoke.co.uk who were triumphant in Best of British, to SecretEscapes.com trophy holders for best travel and Purplebricks.com who won the property prize, it was our turn to find out who out of us and Dimpsey.com would be taking the trophy home…
Suffice to say that the night wasn’t ours and the exceptional Dimpsey.co.uk was handed the iridescent glass prize for their efforts. Many huge congratulations to them and we think it’s fair to give ourselves on the pat on the back as well for our efforts- getting this far was by no means easy. We’ll return stronger and improved for next year though and I’m sure our day will come.
Excitement grew to find out which site had taken the coveted position of Website of the Year whilst the judges, who included Anna Bance of Girl Meets Dress, Dr Stephen Fear, entrepreneur and often known as the Phonebox Millionaire, Robert Tyson and Miisa Mink, mingled with attendees. To much rapture, the TrustedHousesitters’ won the award – much deserved given their meteoric success.
The Good Web Guide has seen that this year significantly, entries from previous GWG Awards returned with new and improved sites and went on to enjoy success in their chosen categories. We must do the same…!
