The Hilton on Park Lane took to outer space for the sell-out ceremony of the Forecourt Trader of the Year Awards 2015. The awards recognised those who go above and beyond in the petrol retailing industry and celebrated entrepreneurial skill, imagination and dedication! Presented by the fabulous TV star Alexander Armstrong, we found out who the stars were of the night.
The prestigious Forecourt Trader of the Year 2015 Award was won by Laurence King of Gloucester Services in Brookthorpe, Gloucestershire. Built by a company dedicated to local food, farming and the surrounding community, Gloucester Services is the antithesis of a normal motorway services area - or any other forecourt in the land. There is a farm shop, a butchers, a cheesemonger; there are freshly made scones and elderflower cordial; a mouthwatering menu of ‘home-cooked' options to sit and eat as you look out at the countryside scenes and fountain of flowing water. There are dry-stone walls and wooden beams and a meadow on the forecourt roof!
Congratulations to all our winners and finalists!
Don't forget next year will brings new entries and a new competition so make sure you register your interest to be kept in the loop for the next awards.
