The awards ceremony, which was held on Friday 30th November at the Southview Park Hotel, proved to be more successful than ever with a record-breaking number of nominees and finalists. The event is in its fourth year running and has grown from strength to strength.
The evening was presented by BBC Radio Lincolnshire’s Melvyn Prior who hosted the attendees through a drink’s reception. The guests heard speeches from the finalists, Matt Warman MP and the Skegness Chamber of Commerce who were this year’s main event sponsor.
The increasing interest had made it substantially harder yet even more exciting for judges to choose the overall winners. The category sponsors, alongside Alison Johnson who was appointed as Chief Judge, were required to visit the finalists of their category to ultimately distinguish a winner.
As category Sponsor for ‘Best Accommodation’ Hodgkinsons Solicitors had the task of selecting one of three finalists to be the overall category winner. The three finalists were:
- Rose Cottage, Bratoft
- The Ivernia, Skegness
- The Saxby, Skegness
The winner for Best Accommodation was Rose Cottage who proved to the judges that she offers “a little bit of heaven in the countryside”. We would like to not only congratulate Lorna for winning this award but also the teams at The Ivernia and The Saxby too for both reaching the finals. Hodgkinsons Solicitors would like to wish them all the best for the future.
