On Tuesday 1st September at Goodwood Racecourse, Chichester, we were delighted to host our annual Business Partner Gala Dinner and Award Ceremony. The event received a brilliant turnout with over 180 guests in attendance.
Director Matt Kearsey and Commercial Manager, Chris Chapman kicked the day off with speeches expressing their gratitude to all of our Business Partners for their hard work and dedication over the past year. Guests were then treated to a three-course meal in the beautiful Charlton suite, followed by an afternoon of racing.
Seven award winners were announced with the most coveted award of Public House of the Year going to The Huntsman, Eridge for excellence in all areas. Judges particularly commented on the team’s commitment to innovation, growth, the community and their beer quality.
Business Partner and Public House of the Year winner, Emma Welch commented:
“We had a great day and we were all so excited to become the H&W Public House of the Year. I am extremely proud of my team and the work we have done here at the Huntsman.”
Each of the award winners was presented with a certificate and trophy as well as a cheque for £250, with Public House of the Year being awarded £1,000. Each of the winners will also receive two tickets to join H&W representatives on a European city break in the New Year.
The day was a great success and we would again like to thank all of our Business Partners who attended and to everyone who was involved in making it an enjoyable event, particularly to our drink sponsors Badger, Heineken UK, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Westons Cider, Boutinot, Diageo, Bacardi Brown Forman Brands, Frobishers and Britvic Soft Drinks.
