We are Cumbria Family Business Awards finalists!

We are absolutely over the moon to reveal that we are finalists in not one, but two categories, in the Cumbria Family Business Awards!

Our wonderful Farm Manager James Irving has been announced as a finalist for Employee of the Year and Eden Golf Club and The Garden at Eden are in the running as finalists in the Large Hotels, Leisure and Tourism category.

This is wonderful recognition for James, who has been with us for a whopping 38 years! He started working for our family business, G Wannop & Son, in his school holidays and weekends and today he is a vital part of our team; his loyalty to our family and our business has been incredible. He has helped us through thick and thin, felt our pain and joined our celebrations. He is very much a part of our family and we are so proud of him. If you would like to vote for him please go to www.cumbriafamilybusinessawards.uk and click on James Irving. Voting closes on 8th March.

We are also incredibly proud that we have made it as finalists in the Large Hotels, Leisure and Tourism category! This is a family business and both Eden Golf Club and The Garden at Eden are labours of love for us. Family mealtimes are board meetings, holidays become market research, sleep is for dreaming up new ideas…We never rest! So to make it as finalists in the Cumbria Family Business Awards is a meaningful achievement for us and our hard-working team.

The awards take place on the 8th of March at the Low Wood Bay Resort in Windermere and we will be there with bells on. Please keep your fingers crossed for us and watch this space!
