A Welshpool company has been recognised as one of the best at a UK awards ceremony.

The Celtic Company won a top award at this year’s greeting card retailing awards - affectionately known as The Retas – and owner Ros Jones, who said she was "chuffed to bits" picked up the award in front of 400 industry leaders at London’s Dorchester Hotel.

The Retas awards, launched in 2005 by Progressive Greetings Worldwide magazine, recognise excellence across the whole greeting cards retailing spectrum, from independents on the high streets, to the mini chains, national multiples, garden centres, department stores, supermarkets as well as art and framing shops.

The Celtic Company beat off the competition to win the Best Independent Greeting Card Retailer in Wales and the Midlands 2016 award.

All the winners in all the retail categories were arrived at as a result of a huge nationwide nomination process. Earlier this year, over 2,000 Retas forms were distributed to UK greeting card publishers, who nominated the retailers that they felt to be the worthy winners in each of the categories.
