The Pride of Malton and Norton Awards 2011 acknowledged the best that Malton and Norton has to offer through the seven awards that were given out on the night.
A gathering of over 100 guests saw the winners receive their awards at the ceremony held at The Old Lodge Hotel in Malton on Friday 25th March.
Crombie Wilkinson Solicitors were delighted to sponsor the ‘Outstanding Achievement Award’ which this year was presented by Jennifer Bartram to Mr Paul Hannigan, a local jockey known for his local and national achievements in the racing world.
“When we were approached by Steven Swift to be involved in supporting the Pride of Malton and Norton Awards we felt very honoured. Not only has our firm had a long presence in Malton providing local people with quality legal services but many of our staff live in the area and are involved in the local community including the horse racing world. In my agricultural work I am involved daily with the farming and racing community and so was delighted to sponsor this very special event. Racing is part of the town's life blood and the courage and determination of Paul Hannigan in pursuit of his title an example to us all." Said Jennifer Bartram.
Steven Swift, one of the event organisers and member of the judging panel said “The Pride of Malton and Norton Awards relies on the support of local businesses and we were delighted to have Crombie Wilkinson Solicitors sponsor the Outstanding Achievement category this year. The awards provide an opportunity for the local community to recognise the achievements of businesses, individuals and voluntary groups who make an important contribution to the area and it was great to have a prominent local business such as Crombie Wilkinson as a supporter.”
