The brains behind Northumberland’s only venue to offer outdoor weddings and beach ceremonies has won a top award.
Duncan Fisher oversaw a year-long multi-million-pound restoration and refurbishment project at Newton Hall and picked up the Entrepreneur of the Year Award on Thursday night for his efforts.
The Grade-II listed Georgian manor house in Newton-by-the-Sea reopened last year and has weddings booked into 2015.
The award, sponsored by NBSL, was presented to Duncan, who said: “I am very priviledged to win an award, and priviledged to work with the people I work with who are extraordinary.
“It is fantastic to be recognised in this way.”
Mark Jones from I won’t Tell, David Brodie and Michelle Brannigan from BB Tel Ltd and Mark Fenwick from Brinkburn Priory were also shortlisted.
