Storthes Hall Park near Huddersfield has won the British Chambers of Commerce Small Business of the Year Award for Mid-Yorkshire, following its transformation over the last 12 months.
This win, the SHP team hope, is the first of many following four nominations this year alone in the business, tourism and hospitality sectors. The spotlight has been put firmly on the country venue set in 44-acres of parkland, after a £2m investment helped convert the popular student accommodation site into a top hospitality and wedding venue.
Storthes Hall Park has already been nominated for Business Events Venue of the Year and New Tourism Business awards, as well as a prestigious White Rose Award, due to be announced later this autumn.
Storthes Hall Park Business Development Manager Miriam Pedersen-Smith said: “We are delighted to gain this recognition for the team who have worked incredibly hard throughout the year to turn Storthes Hall Park into a real destination venue for West Yorkshire.
“We can now look forward to the National Chambers’ finals, as well as our other award nominations in the tourism and hospitality sectors due to be announced later this year.”
Storthes Hall Park is now in the running for a National Chambers Award to be held at the Chamber Business Awards Gala Dinner on Thursday 28th November at the Tobacco Dock, London. The Chamber Business Awards is one of the showpiece events in the business calendar, recognising and promoting the best of British business.
SHP is up against nine other regional winners from across England, Scotland and Wales.
