Crowtree Wigwams, a glamping experience based in Spalding picked up the Business Innovation of the Year award at the 2018 South Holland Business Awards.

The South Holland Business Awards recognise and reward outstanding business in South Holland and Crowtree Wigwams showed the judges a fantastic example of business innovation through the diversification of a small cattle enterprise.

Anne Mews of Crowtree Wigwams, said: “We were initially approached to enter the South Holland Business Awards by the representative of the LAG for the local LEADER Wash Fens Development programme as it was felt it would be appropriate to have a business which had received funding to be represented in the nominations and it was fantastic that we actually went on to win”.

The Business Innovation of the Year category seeks to find the company that has introduced a new product or process, invention, idea or design that has made a significant contribution to the business.

Anne continued: “Since winning in 2018, we have certainly benefited from the publicity received on the back of the awards, this has boosted local recognition of the business which in turn has increased bookings meaning the need to expand our staff thus supporting the job market, locally.

“It’s very exciting times for us, as we have plans to expand the business over the next few years; initially to include an accessible cabin on site to encourage the less able to visit our part of Lincolnshire”.

These awards provide a fantastic platform for local business to shout about their achievements, anyone interested in entering the awards can enter by visiting www.shb-awards.co.uk/apply-for-an-award/
