Hotel nominated for national award

A Mansfield hotel will find out in July if it has won a prestigious national accolade after being named as a finalist at the Red Ribbon Awards — the highest accolade for British family firms.

Mansfield Manor, in Carr Bank Park, has been shortlisted in the Family Business of the Year category, while general manager Kim Wilson has been named as a One To Watch finalist.

Hotel owner Paul Andrews, who runs the award-winning venue with partner Diane Doran, said: “This is fantastic news for everybody who has helped to create a hotel that is in a class of its own in the Mansfield area.

“Kim is a rising star, which has been shown by the awards that she has won. We are delighted that she is up for an award.
“Hopefully, we can win the award, but we are already flying the flag for Mansfield businesses on the national stage.”

Hosted by Family Business Place, and now in its sixth year, the awards seek to recognise and honour some of the most exciting, innovative and long-standing family businesses around the UK.

Amalia Brightley-Gillott, awards manager, said: “Family businesses are the lifeblood of the British economy and the beating heart of our local communities, employing one in three people.

“Despite their impressive contribution, they are often modest and shy about publicising their achievements and so we founded the Red Ribbon Awards.

“This year’s finalists are a treasure trove of incredible companies who all excel in their field and are true beacons of British commerce.”

Winners will be announced at the Red Ribbon Awards Ceremony and Charity Ball in London, on 10th July.
