Myerscough College’s floristry department has received national recognition in the 2020 national British Florist Association (BFA) Awards.
The awards recognise the best in the industry with a prestigious annual ceremony and after Myerscough figured heavily in the initial nominations earlier this year, the College has now been recognised in three categories.
Myerscough has been named runner-up in the category of Training Provider of the Year, highlighting the excellent provision provided for floristry and floral design. Myerscough won the award in both 2018 and 2017, as well as 2015.
Meanwhile, higher education student, Rebecca Sherwin, was runner-up in the category of Floristry Student of the Year, while fellow student, Katherine Birtles, was named as a finalist, highlighting their outstanding work and dedication throughout the year.
Nicola Harrison was named as national runner-up in the category of Floristry Tutor of the Year.
Now in their ninth year, the BFA Industry Awards have established themselves as the place to be recognised within the industry. The British Florist Association is the official voice of the UK floristry industry and the only trade organisation in the industry to be formally recognised as such. In recent years, Myerscough has won numerous BFA awards, as well as being nominated a number of other times.
