Chairman awarded for ‘lifetime contribution to Cumbria’

October 2016

The achievements of our Chairman, Fred Story were recognised at the CN Group Business Awards last night.

He received the prestigious ‘lifetime contribution to Cumbria’ accolade at the black-tie gala dinner and awards ceremony held at the Low Wood Bay Resort, near Ambleside.

CN Group, publisher of The Cumberland News and News & Star, stages the annual awards, which celebrate the achievements of Cumbrian businesses and the people who are behind them.

Judging took place at the end of August but the results were kept a closely-guarded secret until last night.

The judges said that the ‘Story’ brand has become a byword for excellence and an ambassador for the county.

Jonathan Lee, development director of CN Group, who chaired the judging panel, said: “”It is testimony to the energy and commitment of individual business people and the dynamic and diverse businesses across the whole of Cumbria that the judges had such a difficult task.

“Cumbria has such a lot to shout about and be proud of when it comes to its business community.”
