Ashcroft Wellness Studio receives Best Bloomin Business Award

Wendy Wiebe, owner of the Ashcroft Wellness Studio, was presented with the 2015 Best Bloomin’ Business Award by members of the Ashcroft Communities in Bloom committee.

The Wellness Studio, which opened in August 2013, is growing slowly but steadily and is home to practitioners offering different modalities in body work and esthetics.

This business has taken enhancements to their street appeal to a whole new level.  Under the leadership of local artist Marina Papais and husband Daniel Collett, with collaboration from Wiebe’s family and community friends, a fantastic piece of art was created to adorn the front of the building.  The glorious colors in the glass mosaic work, artistically framed with driftwood and other “found” implements, present a colorful, flowing picture of our area.

Communities in Bloom takes pleasure in annually recognizing a local business who has taken pride in their street appeal and is helping to make Ashcroft “bloom.”
