A popular adventure centre is hoping to claim another prize as it represents its town at the national final of a prestigious business award.

Newlands Adventure Centre in Keswick was named Best Rural Creative or Artisan Business at the Northern regional finals of the Rural Business Awards in partnership with Amazon, which took place virtually this year.

The award-winning adventure centre is now headed to the national final of the Rural Business Awards in February 2022.

After picking up the regional award this year, Director of Newlands Adventure Centre, Debbie Beament, said: "It’s an honour to receive this award from the Rural Business Awards and Amazon.

"We are passionate about our region and can’t wait to represent all businesses from the North at the national final."

The Rural Business Awards is hosting a series of regional finals in the North, East, Midlands, South West, Wales and Northern Ireland, throughout October 2021, ahead of the National Final next February.
