Winners in the North and Northern Ireland category and runners up in the Hotel and Leisure category at The Family Business of the Year Awards 2020!! The whole Partington's team/family watched the virtual event on Thursday 25th June, celebrating with a glass or two of fizz it truly was an honour after 76 years in our industry, making us one of a kind in The Fylde Coast! 🥂
The Family Business of the Year Awards are organised annually by Family Business United, the family business champions, and seek to recognise and celebrate the contribution that family firms make to the UK economy. As Paul Andrews, Founder and CEO of Family Business United explains, “With over 5 million family businesses across the UK they really are the heart of the nation and the engine room of the UK economy. Family businesses deserve recognition for the income they generate, jobs they provide and the wealth they create, not to mention the great work they do in the communities in which they are based.''
“We were delighted to bring together such a diverse and vibrant group of family businesses for the virtual awards evening and to celebrate their achievements and ultimately to crown such worthy winners too.”
Competition in both our categories was vast, it was a huge achievement for us especially after our big win in March 2020 at The North West Family Business Awards.
In March we won The Large Leisure and Tourism award, which meant we were then nominated for the regional Family Business Awards, it's a fantastic feeling to be credited for providing friendly places where people have fun and a true lockdown highlight for team Partington's.
