GUSTO pipped its fellow traders to the post and named overall winner of the town-centre window display competition.

The King Street restaurant and bar bowled RHS judges over with its impressive Alice & Wonderland floral display.

Knutsford Bloom helped Gusto achieve its story-book look and the restaurant team said they were ‘over the moon’ to receive the award.

Stefanie Meachin, Gusto’s business development manager, said: “I am absolutely delighted to receive the award for ‘Best shop window display’. A lot of planning and thought was put into this theme, and I would like to say a huge thank you to Knutsford Bloom for bringing our ideas to life.”

Gusto throw Mad Hatter bash for B Positive

BUILDING on its RHS theme, Gusto held a charity Mad Hatters Tea Party on Wednesday July 23.

The event was to raise money for Knutsford-based B Positive, a support network connecting patients, families and friends affected by acute leukaemia.

A raffle and Gusto donation helped raise over £400 for the cause on the day.

General manager Mirek Bulka said: ““We are delighted to be able to help local charities through events throughout the year, being a part of the local community is very important to our company ethos.

“I would like to thank everybody that attended this event and made it such a success especially Stefanie and all the staff involved to make this possible.”
