BANTA winners announced

An air of celebration resounds through the halls of Harrogate Nursery Fair today as the winners of the Baby and Nursery Trade Awards (BANTAs) were announced during a prestigious ceremony at the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate last night.

More than 300 products were entered into the awards and exhibitors at Harrogate Nursery Fair eagerly awaited the results of the judging, which took place during the show yesterday.

 Robert Anslow, managing director of the Baby Products Association (BPA), which hosts the Awards, commented: “ The quantity and quality of entries was overwhelming this year and the judges had a difficult task comparing and selecting a shortlist from an extremely diverse range of products.” 

The winners of the seven categories were announced by comedian Bobby Davro, who provided hilarious entertainment at the Harrogate Nursery Fair Party, prior to knuckling down to the slightly more serious task of announcing the winners. Five products were short listed in each category, with one Highly Commended and one overall winner. These were presented with trophies by Penny Franks, editor of Nursery Today, which sponsors the BANTAs.
