Cartmell Shepherd is proud to be associated with the Cumbria Family Business awards as sponsor of the Large Leisure and Tourism Business category. Sue Howorth of The Family Business Network Ltd and Janet Walker and Sophia Newton of Flock have worked tirelessly over the year to make this event a success. We are thrilled that this year saw a record number of entries and the breadth and quality of the entrants has been outstanding.

Commenting on the finalists in the category, Peter Stafford managing director at Cartmell Shepherd said “Not only have these families created businesses of remarkable quality which are all jewels in Cumbria’s crown, they have also become large scale employers and economic contributors. They have maintained family values whilst achieving all this and any of them would be worthy winners.”
