A historical Rochester-based wedding venue won the top prize at the 2017 Medway Business Awards.

Cooling Castle Barn take home the Business of the Year award at the 2017 ceremony in November

Cooling Castle Barn was named Business of the Year at the ceremony, held at Priestfield Stadium in Gillingham on 17 November.

The company received £1,000 in prize money.

Launched 33 years ago, the Medway Business Awards celebrates local firms who have contributed to the development and regeneration of the area since the closure of the naval dockyard at Chatham, and the decline of the manufacturing industry.  

Cooling Castle Barn is one of five winners out of 12 shortlisted companies.

Two Chatham-based firms received awards, with the Excellence in Client Service Award going to Fingerprint Financial Planning, and Frameless Glass Curtains given the Innovation Award.

The Diversification and Growth prize was given to Gillingham-based courier Beeline Sameday and the Success Through Training Award was taken by learning disability service provider Anchor Support Services, based in Rochester.

Nominations for the 2018 Awards open this April.
