We did it; North West Family Business Awards Winners 2020 !!
What a night !!
Friday 6th March saw Story Decorating Group invited down to the Concorde Hangar at Manchester airport to represent Cumbria in the Property and Construction section of the North West Family Business Awards 2020.
Story Decorating Group beat strong competition to win the award, with a record number of 192 businesses entering the awards from across the North West region.
This first-class event was held under the wings of Concorde in the purpose-built hangar and events centre at Manchester Airport with host, food writer, and presenter Nigel Barden.
To have made the final of these awards was already a massive achievement for us. Being given the chance to represent Cumbria against such amazing competition from Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside was an outstanding achievement in itself but actually bringing the award back home to Cumbria is just unreal. The whole event was fabulous from start to finish and winning shows that our business is exactly what the awards suggests, a business with family values at its foundation and one that its staff and owners can be extremely proud of.
Founder and Co-director, Sue Howorth said: “We were inundated with some incredible entries and the judges had extremely difficult decisions to make so the all of the finalists should be extremely proud of themselves!
Co-director, Dave Clarkson said: "We’ve been absolutely blown away by the strength and diversity of applications.”
Jacqui Jackson from Thomas Jardine & Co and 2020 NW Awards Chair of Judges said: “The number and quality of applications from across the North West has been outstanding, the businesses are clearly proud to be family businesses and the detail in many of the entries has demonstrated that they are very progressive and innovative”
As winners, Story Decorating Group will now go on to represent Cumbria at the Family Business of the year awards at Londons Mayfair Hotel on June 4th North West Family Business Awards:
The North West Family Business Awards were created and are run by founder and Co-Director Sue Howorth and Co Director Dave Clarkson of The Family Business Network Ltd. They exist to celebrate the contribution that family businesses make to the North West region and wider community.
