Well who would have thought it?

We only went and won a Gold Award at the Cambridgeshire Digital Awards, two years running!

We love getting the word out about what we do at Bridges, and also sharing news about our fellow indies and the great events going on locally. So it would seem that those lovely people at the Cambridge Digital Awards liked it too, and they gave us the top prize for 'Best Use of Social Media for Business.'

We really didn't think we would win again this year, as the competition was so hot. We were up against an established agency promoting a large brand. So you can imagine our surprise (and lack of prepared speech) when our name was announced. It just goes to show, the little family businesses can have a voice too, which is so empowering in this corporate arena we are in.

The awards dinner was held at The Belfry Hotel in Cambourne, and we were dining with a lovely group of people. Lucky table 4 turned out to be decorated with 3 gold awards, so we were in great company. BAO Agency won the Best Website award, and Musings and More, Best Blog in the entertainment category. The fizzy water was flowing on table 4, I can tell you!

It was a super evening to catch up with other Cambridge businesses, like our friends at  Sookio and Catfish Web Design and we were pleased to see so many Cambridge foodies, like Cambridge Food Collective, being decorated.  


Take a look here to see all the winners:

Many thanks to Cambridge Digital Awards for putting on a great event.  We are proudly displaying our two gold awards on our Bridge Street windows, one facing the north and one facing the south, so you won't miss the glowing awards in the sun no matter which direction you come from when you visit us.   

We hope to see more businesses next year in the celebration.  While some may think the digital has stopped people from face-to-face interaction, I think it has changed the way people interact with each other.  We are now provided with more information, more choices and the means to do it.  We can communicate with each other and with world more effectively and efficiently.  Isn't this the biggest reason for this celebration?

Drum roll please! Here are the winners.

Thank you to all who entered our competition, we were thrilled to see your creative pumpkins! Without further ado, here is our winner:

Congratulations to Mags Dixon!

We loved your majestic bird.


Mags wins a family lunch (Mains, drinks and desserts) for up to 4 people.

Our runners up are:

Gina Ferrari; who's pumpkin has a spooky character with a big personality

Jacqui

Your delightful couple did make us smile

Our runners up can enjoy lunch including a main, a drink and a dessert.

It was such fun receiving all your entries. What a talented bunch you all are!

You inspired us to think about all the pumpkin and Halloween dishes we like to make.  


The winner bird pumpkin reminds us of a fish-lover's dish: prawn fried rice with diced winter squash.  This is a pumpkin dish with an oriental twist.  A dish fit for Mag's majestic bird.



We also love Jacqui's simple and fun carving of a loving couple.  We could just see them tucking in to a plate full of our 'mummified' sausage rolls.  


While the fun gentleman pumpkin grinning in front of the camera with one remaining tooth, we suggest the traditional organic pumpkin soup together with a blended smoothie for him to ensure the last precious teeth is intact after meal.


As for Gina's pumpkin with lots of scary teeth, we would suggest a dish of roasted pumpkin seeds.  Something for him to grind his teeth on! Crunchy roasted pumpkin seeds are good to sprinkle on the top of any salad.  



With the autumn leaves in front of both Jacqui's and Gina's pumpkins, we know the weather is getting chillier.  We love to share a warming dish of roast pumpkin as part of our family meal.  For this winter warmer, we'd suggest using the Japanese Kabocha squash which taste like sweet potato with a fluffy texture.  Just add a bit of butter, salt and garlic, it will turn the pumpkin pieces into a super yummy dish and fill the kitchen with warmth and sweetness in the winter days.

We are so pleased to have joined forces with Cambridge Sustainable Food this year to encourage everyone to 'squash the waste' by thinking about using up the food surplus during the Pumpkin Festival.  I hope everyone enjoy the creativity of pumpkin carving and cooking of various nutrious dishes.  Do let us know if you have some creative recipes you want to share with us.
