Gala in Bloom 2013

Binniemyre Guest House is delighted to be one of the winners in the Gala in Bloom 2013 competition, claiming first prize in the category of “Best Commercial Premises Floral Display”.

Every year Galashiels and Langlee Community Council’s “Gala in Bloom” group – together with Galashiels Chamber of Trade – hold their annual award presentations.

Carol and Bill can be seen at the presentation ceremony held at Old Gala House in the photograph above, Carol far left holding the shield with husband, Bill (in red trousers) behind her.

This is the 9th year running that Binniemyre’s gardens have been prize winning, seven of those years receiving 1st prize.

With the beautiful, warm summer we have experienced this year, the garden was in full bloom and guests took every opportunity to sit out late into the evening, enjoying the various seating areas which are dotted around the vast garden.
