A trade stand which was created to look like Henley town centre at Christmas has won a national award.
The stand was made by Jolyon Marshall Ltd, a recruitment consultancyÂ in the watch and jewellery trade, and bagged the best stand award at the Company of Master Jewellers summer trade event in Birmingham on August 7 and 8.
The company, which is based in Hambleden, says it is well-known for its “spectacular displays” at such occasions and decided to showcase the town at the Christmas-themed event.
The winning stand used pictures of Henley’s Market Place, including the town hall, which were taken by the company’s account manager Tim McManus and set against a snowy sky scene.
There was also red, white and blue bunting similar to that currently on display in the real Market Place, and a Twenties-style tradeÂ cart filled with cakes and baked goods.
The standÂ was named joint winner withÂ ringmakerÂ Brown and Newirth.
ManagerÂ Rebecca Orange, who stood on the stand holding goods during the show, said: “We are so very proud. We came joint first place with another largely respected brand and beat the likes of Seiko and Fei Liu Jewellery but to name a few.
“We are well known for our spectacular displays when exhibiting amongst the glitz and glamour of the jewellery on display.
“Our beautiful market town took centre stage with stunningly photographed display boards, theÂ central photograph being an enhanced night time shot of the Town Hall.”
Founder Jolyon Marshall added: “I’m very proud of the accolade given to us by the Company of Master Jewellers.
“Recruitment very rarely gains praise or commendation and its uplifting to have won praise by established andÂ prospective clients alike.
“Our team here have been real troopers in getting ready for this event andÂ their sterling efforts made every difference to the outcome of the occasion.”
