Awards add spice to family firms
Sunday 07 June 2009
Levi Root, the Reggae Reggae sauce maker, and Barclays small business experts have found Britain's most enterprising "family affair" in Norfolk: its the Howard family, who run a wholesale nursery in Diss.
Howard Nurseries was founded by David Howard, now 70, who still works every day of the week to grow perennials in containers and as bare root plants. Howard runs the business, which has been trading for 40 years, with his wife, Sheila, and their daughter, Christine. Barclays is giving them £5,000 plus advice and of course, a little of Levi's sauce-making experience.
Regional winners were Teve's Tasties, a delicatessen in Worcestshire, the Middlesex-based Freedom of Dance school; JS Security and Electrical, in Tyne & Wear; the Glencairn Crystal Studio, East Kilbride; Devon's The Old Bag Company; the Otley Brewing Company, Pontypridd; Yorkshire's T Gibson's Butchers and Harrop Fold Farm bed and breakfast to cookery school in the Peak District.
