The Anglian Home Improvements timber orangery proved a popular draw with visitors to this year’s Grand Designs Live event. The headline sponsor’s eye-catching sage green Edwardian style orangery with timber bi-fold doors was a central feature in the Grand Gardens part of the show.
In addition to the timber orangery, Anglian’s double glazed and triple glazed A rated Top Hung windows were showcased on the stand, as well as traditional downpipes and hoppers from its rooftrim range.
Visitors to the Anglian stand were given a chance to win £1,000 cash in the Grand Giveaway Butterfly Hunt by spotting the six Great British butterflies hidden on the stand. The lucky winner will be drawn at random towards the end of May.
TV presenter and environmentalist Philippa Forrester, who is also a brand ambassador for Anglian Home Improvements, gave talks at the show on her five golden rules for Eco Living. This included keeping the home well insulated through the use of draft excluders, cavity insulation and by installing double and triple glazing.
Anglian’s Marketing Director Martin Troughton was one of three judges – along with Grand Designs’ Kevin McCloud and celebrity garden designer James Alexander-Sinclair – who selected the winner for the Grand Designs Live London Garden Designer of the Year. Marc O'Neill was chosen by the panel as the worthy winner for his imaginative design that included a curved wall containing ferns, wildflowers and variety of greenery, as well as a sunken copper pool to support wildlife.
Caroline Mills, Head of Marketing Communications at Anglian Home Improvements, said, “This year’s Grand Designs Live has been another great success, with huge numbers of visitors and plenty of interest in Anglian’s timber orangery and A rated windows. We are proud once again to be the headline sponsor of the Grand Design Live shows, both in London and Birmingham, and have been delighted to have this opportunity help visitors to the show with their home improvements.”
