BATLEY’S Potting Shed Spa has won another industry honour.
The popular spa, based at Redbrick Mill, has been crowned the best salon in the country at the British Hair & Beauty Awards – its eighth major industry nod since launching in 2011.
The awards required clients to vote for the business they felt should be recognised, with the public votes then added to judges’ scores.
The Potting Shed, the brainchild of the owners of Mirfield’s Eastthorpe Hall, beat off stiff competition from around the country to be crowned winners.
Owner Sam Pearce said: “It is such an achievement and one that we are so proud of.
“We strive to set the standards for the industry and provide an exceptional service to our clients. To be recognised again for a national award is testament to our beliefs.”
In another boost for the spa team, Sam has also been shortlisted for the Sue Ryder Yorkshire Women of Achievement Award for Business.
Every year organisers ask the people of Yorkshire to nominate women they believe have excelled within the different award categories.
Sam added: “I am truly overwhelmed by the nomination and humbled that I have been recognised for my work in the beauty industry.
“I have dedicated the last 16 years to being focused and determined to make a difference, pouring my heart and soul into my work. To be recognised for this in our region means everything.”
The award ceremony takes place in mid-May at the Royal Armouries in Leeds.
