UK POOL & SPA AWARDS - COMPLETE SPAS WINS 1ST PRIZE FOR "BEST SPA OR HOT TUB PROJECT IN THE UK"
Rachel Grinnall (Left) and Pete collecting their award from the organisers.
The equivalent of the Pool and Spa Industry Oscars have been presented to the leading swimming pool and spa companies in the water leisure industry.
Winners were presented with certificates and trophies at an informal champagne reception followed by a buffet held in the Oasis Suite of the Crown Plaza hotel at the NEC on Thursday January 24.
Run by Pool & Spa Scene magazine, the UK’s leading water leisure publication, the annual UK Pool & Spa Awards were run in association with the UK Pool & Spa Expo.
“You do not have to be affiliated to any trade organisations in order to take part, so this truly is the ﬁrst opportunity for the majority of water leisure companies in the UK, to be recognised in this way,” commented Pool & Spa Scene magazine publisher Christina Connor.
“By partnering with the UK Pool & Spa Expo, Pool & Spa Scene magazine is delighted to give our annual award winners an even bigger platform to promote themselves, their products and services, not to mention some outstanding projects,” Christina added
“Not that these awards are just about the winners, but the entire pool and spa industy, that stands to benefit from the publicity generated from these totally independent awards.”
More than 50 companies were asked which pool and spa companies and products had stood out for them in 2012. Internet voters were able to play their part in finding which companies stood out from the crowd in 12 varying award categories that recognise product, project and business excellence. Verified e-mail votes counted towards 40% of the overall total with the other 60% being decided by an international Pool & Spa Awards jury.
Complete Spas 2nd best tub in the UK
Pete and Rach doned their suits and traveled to Brighton over the weekend to attend an industry trade show and awards ceremony and came away with a 2nd place.
We entered the awards in November but didn't find out how we had done until we attended the dinner dance held at The Grand in Brighton.
The award was for a spa that was installed on a roof terrace in Worcester city centre which involved a crane and a great deal of planning to ensure minimal disruption.
The awards are held every year by BISHTA (British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association) who are the industries governing body.
The Most Loved "Having A Ball"
Last night (Friday the 13th May) We got all dressed up and headed over to the Coventry Hilton to celebrate winning the most loved hot tub business in the UK for the second year running. There were over 200 business's and franchisees there to have a good old knees up.

Final note Rach and myself would like to thank all of our customers for voting for us

We still have a bit of painting to do and a few final small alterations but we now have to extra space filled with new and pre owned spas so come and have a look at what we've done and see whats new, and as our customers know the kettle is always on.
Heres to another great year of meeting new friends and getting people tubing

A local Hot Tub company has again made a little girls dreams come true by installing a Hot Tub on behalf of the “Make a Wish Foundation”
House bound 9 Year old Lucy Edwards suffers from Cerebral Palsy and was missing her regular swimming outings so with the help of Complete Spas at Blackminster Business Park, Marquis Spas and the Make a wish Foundation she can again reap the benefits of hot water with her family.
Swinging into action, Pete and Rachel Grinnall of Complete Spas carried out the site survey as soon as the ‘wish’ was granted, returning a few days later with colleague Ben Yates to prepare the concrete base, and even presenting Lucy with a rubber duck in anticipation of the arrival of the spa. At the same time, the ‘Reward’ Marquis Spa from UK distributor Golden Coast - who, with the US manufacturer, is a long-term supporter with over 200 wishes to their name - despatched the hot tub in order that it could be installed the following week
Complete Spas off to Germany
Earlier this year we were asked if we could collect a spa from Osnabruck (Germany) bring it back to our showroom, service, deliver and install to Catterick. NO PROBLEM was the reply.
5th August involved a nice early start for myself and 2 additional members of staff who came along for a bit of a jolly with the promise of fine German lager to The Channel Tunnel being a new experience for all three of us.
Upon reaching France (vowing never to travel by ferry ever again) we then had the fun of realising that the Sat Navs only worked for the country that you were in so back to relying on Google maps. from Calais to Osnabruck believe it or not is all dual carriageway. Brilliant!!!
|We had a brief stop over in "Wankum" for lunch but by 5pm, 12 hours and 540 miles later we arrived at the clients house, Within an hour we had the spa on the dolly and a beer in hand waiting for the BBQ to complete it's task of cooking our homemade burgers.
The client had kindly agreed for us to sleep at his home even with my ever-growing entourage and after a few bottles of wine we headed into town for a few Wheat beers.
9 am next day we were on our way back to the UK with Spa in tow with only a quick stop over in Wankum again for pastries (see pic). Unfortunately the we had a delay of 2 hours on the tunnel due to fire???? but were still back at Steve's having cheese and biscuits with a bottle of duty free by 10 pm.
We kept the spa at the showroom for a couple of weeks while the customer moved back to the UK. The service was just a standard spit and polish as the spa was under 2 years old but we did rub it back to wood and give it 3 coats of new stain making it look like new.
The delivery was a walk in the park after the "Germany in a day" episode, it was delivered installed, wired, filled and tested with myself being back in the showroom for high tea at four.
We were please to undertake the job as the client understood the difficulties of the task as his previous removal men had taken 3 Months.
Thanks to Steve and Mike for the company and Gary and Carolyn Deakin for the hospitality.
When You Wish Upon a Spa…
Bubbly Katie Reynolds dreamt of relaxing in her own home hot tub – and a member of thebestof Evesham has played the role of Genie by helping grant her wish.
‘Make a Wish Foundation’ – a charity that aims to realise wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses – heard of Katie’s desire for a soothing spa in the garden of her Henley-in-Arden home. The youngster suffers from cerebral palsy and the spa’s air jets help to ease her condition.
And after teaming up with Complete Spas in nearby Evesham the Foundation has promised her a luxury Marquis Spa.
Pete Grinnall, who runs Complete Spas with wife Rachel, said: “We’re delighted for Katie and pleased to have been able to help out. Everyone has pulled together: we’re installing the spa for free, whilst other firms are also chipping in by donating their services.”
Complete Spas was recently runner-up in thebestof Evesham’s ‘Best Family Business’ awards thanks largely to the mass of online reviews that gave the company an average rating of “Truly Exceptional”.
Rachel added: “We now have a hyperlink from our own website to the review section on our thebestof feature so people can read how other customers enjoyed their week or weekend of spa pampering.
“These kinds of online review and testimonial facilities take time to develop and maintain – time that, as a small business, we don’t have – so it’s brilliant that thebestof look after this for us.”

New studios for Touch FM
Touch FM have recently moved to new studios and Pete and Rachel were invited to take a look around and meet some of the presenters.
Complete Spas have been advertising with Touch since November and have found it one of the best mediums of advertising that they use, reaching nearly 60'000 listeners throught the vale and cotswolds.
Local Company in Hot Water
While a lot of Hot Tub and Spa Dealers have been struggling during the winter season Complete Spas have been going from Strength to Strength, with their hard work being recognised by one of the top Manufactures in the business.
Complete Spas have been awarded dealer of the month for March/April by one of their suppliers “The Canadian Spa Company” for outstanding sales and customer service.
Paul Streeter of “The Canadian Spa Company” Said “Complete Spas have been one of our most consistent dealers over the past year but with the opening of their new larger showroom they have really shone through with customer service and attention to detail being top of their priorities.”
The Canadian Spa Company has an impressive stockists list with their spas being sold in Argos, Tesco Direct, Homebase and Wicks to name just a few and along with their dealers this make them one of the best known and largest Spa manufacturers in the UK and Europe.
Pete Grinnall from Complete Spas commented “ The past year has been tough for a lot of Hot Tub dealers with the horrendous floods and summer sunny weather of 2007 being virtually non existent people just haven’t been thinking about their gardens and Hot Tubs.”
Mr Grinnall continued “Hopefully this year will be better and if we continue in the way that we have started then it will be our best year ever.
Moving to Blackminster Business Park has been a gamble for us with the current economic growth and people worried about the looming Credit Crunch but so far the gamble has been worth it we have seen sales Treble and 5 Hot Tubs a week going out on hire.”
Mr Grinnall travelled to London to collect his award from Paul Streeter The Canadian Spa Companies National Sales Manager.
