Our finalist journey gets underway at Donington

A magnificent country house, set in acres of rolling parkland, is not the usual weekday, lunchtime destination for our team members.

But the huge, wood-panelled library at Donington Hall, Castle Donington, was where our owner Simon Lobina and his sister Susanna, our marketing manager, enjoyed lunch this week.

They were there for a celebration for all this year’s finalists in the Midlands Family Business of the Year award. Lobina Transport is thrilled to have been nominated for Employer of the Year.

Built in the late 1700s, Donington Hall is now home to Stuart Garner, the owner of Norton Motorcycles. He lent it to the organisers of the awards to bring us all together and explain the next stages of the competition.

It was good to hear that this year saw a record number of entries. Charlotte Perkins, of  The Wilson Organisation who organise the awards, said the standard was higher than ever before.

We enjoyed meeting and chatting to the other finalists and hearing how we’ll all be eligible for the People’s Choice Awards, to be decided by an online public vote during October.

The judges will interview us in the weeks ahead to find out more about the family values that drive Lobina Transport. Then there will be a glittering awards ceremony in Leicester, in November, when the winners will be revealed.

Good luck to everyone who is on the finalists’ journey with us. It’s going to be fun!
