Well loved local golf club, Eden Golf Club and Garden at Eden, based in Carlisle, were named runner’s up at this year’s prestigious National Family Business Awards in the Large Hotels, Leisure & Tourism category.
Having won the Cumbrian regional accolade in March of this year, the team at Eden Golf Club and Events went through to the national finals which was celebrated with an awards reception at The May Fair Hotel in London.
Organised by Family Business United, The Family Business of the Year Awards were created to celebrate and showcase the UK family business sector, to recognise the diversity of family firms across the country and to celebrate the contribution that they make to business. Eden Golf Club was nominated due to the family business’ nature, values and its outstanding representation of the Leisure & Tourism sector.
Managing Director of The Garden At Eden, Julie Wannop said, “It was a huge honour to have been named runner-up in such highly-regarded national awards. I’m so proud that we were able to represent not only Eden Golf Club and Garden at Eden but also Cumbria. A lot of love and hard work goes into both of these businesses and to have that recognised by the judges was wonderful. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone in our team for helping us to get to this stage and a huge congratulations to all the family business that were at the award ceremony with us – it really did showcase the brilliant things family businesses are doing across the UK.”
