February started with the announcement of our 2016 Business of the Year Awards – our winners were Gas Water Heating (Servicing) Ltd and we were very pleased to present them with their awards at our celebration evening with thebestof last Monday at Cookes Studio’s on Abbey Road.
Craig Sherrington of Virginia House was our guest speaker for the evening and he told us all about his journey into being his own boss, from taking over the General Burgoyne in Urswick to his latest venture, Virginia House in Ulverston.
The Evening Mail featured our awards in Wednesday’s paper – so we were thrilled.
Suzanne got invited to the BBC Radio Cumbria studio as a social media expert when Neil Smith hosted the Money Talks show on Monday 15th, which was really exciting. Social media plays a huge part in how we all communicate these days, especially Twitter through the recent floods and also now as things are finally getting back to normal.
And of course, last but not least, we have 2 new member this month. We welcome Photo Express in Ulverston and Barrow and District Credit Union to thebestof family, so look out for their features, blogs and offers coming very soon
