Cranleigh business wins national Christmas Tree award
Congratulations to Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce member Santa Fir who have once again won a prestigious national award.
Santa Fir founder Hans Alexanderson was winner of the Champion Wreath category at the British Christmas Tree Growers’ Association competition.
Hans was also runner-up in the Christmas Tree category at the same awards.
As a result, a tree from Santa Fir will be displayed in the Pillared Room at 10 Downing Street this Christmas and their wreath will hang on the front door.
Commenting in the Surrey Advertiser this week, Hans said:
“I am really thrilled. We swept the board on wreaths by winning the dressed and undressed category, and are really pleased that it was a Douglas fir which won for the tree.
“We find the Douglas fir goes down particularly well with our American customers at our Christmas Tree Farms as that’s a more common choice back in the States.
“I’m glad we chose to enter it today.”
As a result of his win, Hans will get to visit the Prime Minister at the start of December.
Our congratulations to Hans and his team at Santa Fir on this fantastic achievement.
