The annual Hall and Woodhouse Business Partnerships Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony were held on Monday 20th June at the Crown Hotel in Blandford, Dorset. The evening provided an opportunity for Business Partners and their team members to celebrate their hard work and successes during the past year.
Director Matt Kearsey began the evening with a few words to thank all Business Partners for the exceptional work undertaken and Commercial Manager, Chris Chapman, followed by outlining some of the key commercial highlights of 2015/16. The announcement of the Gala Award winners soon followed, with seven awards in total.
The Dog and Duck were announced as the Best Newcomer within H&W Business Partnerships 2016. The judges chose the Dog and Duck as best Newcomer because of its clear rejuvenation and uplift. The Business Partners have shown true engagement with the local community and as a result the pub has been brought back to life with guests at its forefront.
Congratulations to Donna, Waine and the team.
