Congratulations to Carlisle Living Award winners!

On Friday 6th September, Carlisle Living held their annual awards event. The evening took place at The Halston in Carlisle and was attended by the hard-working people of Carlisle who have helped to shape the city over the past 12 months.

Once again, we were proud sponsors of the Food & Drink category. This category sees those whose dedication, innovation and hard work throughout the year has contributed to Carlisle becoming the destination of choice for fine food and drink.

We attended the event as many of our customers were present and shortlisted for prizes. Our sales director, David Jenkins, was on stage to hand out the awards and congratulate the winners.

The winners were:
