Juniper-ash in Melton Business Awards 2012


Juniper-ash is now award nominated decorating service

Juniper-ash Decorating is a finalist for local awards having only just celebrated 1st birthday.  

Really excited as I am a finalist in the Melton Business Awards 2012!

I have been nominated for Best New Business and am looking forward to attending the gala dinner and presentation event at the Pera Conference centre on Thursday 22nd March.

It’s not often I get to dress up; my normal day wear is decorators dungarees and a light dusting of ceiling paint so I am looking forward to putting on the posh frock and make-up for the evening.

The event will be a great opportunity to meet other business in Melton and fingers crossed I may come away with an award.

Watch this space!

view from the scaffolding

It quite a view from the top!

Looking forward to getting on with the outdoor work, I love being outside and enjoying the view from the top of a scaffolding tower.

Still a bit cold but Spring is definitely here and outdoor work should be underway at beginning of April.

If you have exterior work you are considering this year why not give Liz a call on 01664 851502 or contact Juniper-ash Decorating through the website.
