The vibrancy of Carlisle and its businesses has been celebrated once again through the Carlisle Living Awards, where the cities best places to eat, meet, and work were revealed.
We were thrilled to see some of the businesses we work with scoop awards, as well as some of our favourite local firms.
We provided wifi for the event, held at The Garden at Eden, Carlisle Golf Course, allowing thousands of social media posts and congratulatory messages to be sent on the night.
A crowd of 440 packed in for the ceremony last month, organised by Carlisle Living Magazine.
David Allen IT Solutions won the Best Professional Services Award – big congratulations to their team.
One of the biggest cheers of the night was when Carlisle Castle’s Weeping Window poppies installation won Event of the Year. Music on the Marr was the Best Community Arts Initiative, while Tullie House’s Percy Kelly retrospective won Best Arts Initiative.
DreamsDay Spa, a previous winner, and Angel Hair Studio took the best beauty business and best hair salon titles, while Schuh in The Lanes won best retail team and Barrie Mark Fitness & Nutrition Centre was the winning health and fitness initiative.
Coffee Genius took Best City Café for the fourth year out of five, while the winner in a new category for Best Village Café was The Reading Room at Walton.
England netballer and Commonwealth Games gold medal winner Helen Housby, from near Wigton, sent a delighted message from Australia, after being awarded The Sports City award, Carlisle-based cookery writer and Instagram star Julie Jones, The Soulful Baker, won a Style in the City Award, and Jacqui and Keith Jackson won The Innovation Award for The Guild workspace in Abbey Street.
Best City Bar was Spider & Fly, which opened last year on Stanwix Bank, and Cecil Street’s Foxborough won best restaurant.
There wasn’t an award for best internet connection, but if you want to find out more about that just get in touch..
Why did we provide the wifi connection at the Carlisle Living Awards?
We know how exciting it is to attend award ceremonies, and share magic award-winning moments with friends, family and colleagues. But sometimes in Cumbria it can be difficult to get a decent internet or 3g/4g mobile connection.
We are happy to help out by providing wifi at the Carlisle Living Awards. It does of course allow us to showcase our capability to provide reliable, and fast connections in Cumbria – something we are proud of.
