For showing the ambition and the aspiration to do something not just for yourself but for people whom you employ, and in that way to make our country a stronger and better place.”

Business Secretary, Lord Mandelson went on to say: "Britain’s entrepreneurs have the skills, resources and knowledge base to lead us out of the downturn. This reception is an opportunity to hear first hand from those entrepreneurs and businesses owners who have shown great enterprise and flair in ensuring that their businesses are successful in the current climate.”

Stewart Golf continues to grow even in these difficult times and I can only put that down to the continued innovation, persistence and sheer hard work of the whole team.
