A north Northumberland dealer has won a top industry award.

Mike Hope of Wooler, the ATV/quad specialist and garden machinery dealer won the 2015 ATV/Quad Dealer of the Year Award.

The award was announced and presented to Jamie Hope at the annual Service Dealer Conference and Awards by Steve Gibbs, deputy editor of Service Dealer magazine.

The awards, organised by the leading business magazine, are now in their 12th year and recognise outstanding sales and service advice and support by dealers in the garden machinery, sportsground machinery, farm machinery, forestry equipment and ATV/quad industry.

The judges said: ‘Established in 1977, Mike Hope has established a highly-regarded sales and service dealership with the focus on ATVs. He retains customer loyalty, even when they move away – perhaps they recall his motto, There is Always Hope’.
