Richard & Iain Steel received the award from sponsors The Hampshire Chronicle and Hampshire Chamber of Commerce.
“We are truly delighted to receive this on behalf of all our team of dedicated staff. They give of themselves 24 hours a day, every day, to help bereaved families in Hampshire” said Iain Steel.
At the end of the Awards evening at The Guildhall – the judging panel choose an overall winner from the 7 presentations made from the 28 nominations. Richard Steel & Partners were chosen as The Business of the Year 2017 and presented with a second award and framed certificate.
“I like to think that this reflects that the Steel family have been providing funeral services to the local community since 1860, as one of the longest established family businesses in Winchester that remain in the same family ownership – it as a privilege and an honour to help. My father, Stanley Steel, who was twice Mayor of Winchester, would be so proud of the continued dedication to the City of Winchester and the surrounding area.” said Richard Steel BEM.
The Awards and certificates are displayed in the reception of Alderman House, beneath the portraits of the Steel family.
