We entered the White Rose Awards last year and to our delight managed to make it through to the finals, where we were lucky enough to be awarded the highly commended award in our category. After this Welcome to Yorkshire entered us into the Visit England awards and to our amazement we again got through to the finals. Off we went to London last Sunday to the awards at the beautiful Palm Court, what an increadable experience, with the fabulously funny Sue Perkins presenting. The winners really did deserve to win the award, and although we were disappointed we also realise that we are just at the start of our journey and to get to the finals of a national competition before we have even finished the re build of Grassfield Hall is simply amazing for us, and we were very proud to be there. It’s given us a taste of what the future can hold if we keep working hard!
