Carlisle Living Award winners

We were ever so proud to be winners of The Innovation Award at the Carlisle Living Awards 2019!

The awards event is held every year in Carlisle and celebrates the best of the city. From successful businesses to caring charity workers and inspirational people, the awards acknowledge the passion, drive and determination of those that go the extra mile in making Carlisle the great border city it is.

This year’s event was held at The Halston on Friday 6th September and was hosted by television presenter, Fiona Armstrong, and theatre director, David McNeill.

We knew we had been shortlisted for the award and were finalists with Bruce & Luke’s and Liquid Studios. Both of which we have brilliant working relationships with, so the competition was friendly! When the announcement came of our win, we were completely overwhelmed. Our new foodstore only opened its doors in April of this year and has already proved a success with locals, so the award is a wonderful acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication that our wonderful team has put in over recent months.

The judges said: “Celebrating more than 140 years in business, this family-owned company continues to deliver a high-quality food service. The opening of its new food store is a clear indication that this company is moving with the times.” Congratulations!

We would like to thank our customers for nominating us and the judges for awarding us this amazing award.
