Commenting on the award he said;
“This is absolutely fantastic. There has been so much love, time and energy gone into this project.”
“It was two and a half years from us buying the building to the opening but we’d actually kept an eye on the site for the previous two years as it’s such an iconic building.”
“It’s been a privilege to have worked on the project and also to be named one of the top ten coolest hotels by the Daily Telegraph.”
Detty Tyler, children and young person service co-ordinator at ERVAS was also thrilled to win. Volunteen which is well-established helps young people gain life skills.
Commenting on winning the award Detty said;
“This is just fantastic to get this recognition for a homegrown scheme which is now in its 11th year.”
“It’s great that the people of the East Riding have recognised. This not just for us but for the young people as well who do get involved and can make a difference in their communities and their own lives too.”
Mrs Chadwick explained the importance of these awards. She also said they recognise the contribution made by so many throughout the East Riding.
