On Thursday 7th February Lakeside Group attended the Federation of Small Business Awards having be nominated as finalists for the category of family business of the year.

The day involved plenty of networking with small businesses and FSB members and was a great opportunity to learn about a diverse range of businesses. On our table we sat with two family businesses; Exmoor Zoo and Tarr’s ice cream who were in the same category as us. Their businesses were in completely different sector’s yet we shared some commonality of running a small family business.

Exmoor Zoo were the proud winners of the South West Family Business of the Year and we wish them every luck in the National awards.
