Cumbria Family Business Awards 2017

Well that was a bit good! The first Cumbria Family Business Awards took place on Friday 10th March 2017 to a full house of the county’s finest. #CFBA2017 #WeAreCumbria trended third nationally on twitter as people got behind the event and Bells of Lazonby were crowned Outstanding Cumbria Family Business of the Year. For our full list of fantastic winners please visit our ‘2017 Winners’ page, all eqully deserving, all very different!

The awards ceremony was hosted by the charming Dave Myers a proud Cumbrian and advocate for the county, and the feedback has been astonishing…


The event was superbly organised, the attention to detail was beautiful, but my overriding memory will be the feeling of warmth, joy and sense of community, now that really is hard to achieve!

 Thank you again!

 Best wishes
