Dumfriesshire Business Wins Christmas Award!

Dumfries and Galloway is the hometown of us here at UTCT and we are proud to say that one of our very own Doonhamers has been awarded  ‘Best Christmas Grotto’ for the fourth year running!

A huge festive congratulations is in order to the owners of Hetland Hall Garden Center in Carrutherstown, Dumfries & Galloway on their award for their stunning festive displays and Santa’s Grotto!

Children and adults alike from all across the region flocked in their thousands to experience the festive offerings which included real reindeer, Christmas decorations and of course Santa’s Grotto where children were given a gift and read a story by Mrs Claus herself.

Owner David Wilson said:

“The staff worked really hard in November to provide our customers with a magical Christmas experience and this included our Christmas grotto and Mrs Clause in her cabin telling the children stories before they entered the Ice Cave to visit Santa.  We also had reindeer for the first time which proved a great hit. It is really rewarding to see it was appreciated and enjoyed.”

Congratulations to everyone involved at Hetland! We love visiting each year and look forward to returning in 2016!
