Inspire Business Awards 2010

We are very proud to announce that Coronet Turf was yet again a winner.  This is our 3rd Business award in as many years and we are shouting it out from the roof tops – well can you blame us?
I sure you will agree that James and Claire Hewetson-Brown look very pleased with their award in the photo below.

The Inspire Business Awards are hosted each year to celebrate business successes in Basingstoke and North Hampshire.  A huge venue was required for this years awards due to popularity and support –  a vacant business unit in Hatch, Old Basing, a 10,00 square foot area which was transformed over several days into something quite special.
Over 400 people representing businesses across north Hampshire gathered on Thursday evening  (18th November) to celebrate their success in the area.
As reported by Sardine Media, one of the event Sponsors, “Coronet Turf was a finalist last year and has built its business on an innovative wild flower turf, the turf is produced using a unique soil-less process and has cornered the growing market in green roofing. The business is led by James Hewetson-Brown who continues to develop the product, researching the use of recycled wool carpeting in the production process. This is again an example of a small local business making an impact with an innovative product in an international market. The judges felt that the continual product innovation and research central to this business was key to its success as they explore new international markets.”
