A DESIGN firm from East Lancashire enjoyed individual and team glory at an awards night in London.

Kitchen Design Centre’s Maxine Hutchinson was recognised for ‘best use of small space’ at the Neff Masterpartner awards.

A trio of other entries by the Rossendale firm secured top three finishes, including their Barrowford showroom being recognised.

Suzanne Carter was in the top three, also in the best use of small space category, and Simon Thomas was lauded in the ‘best designer for a kitchen under £25k’ section.

Maxine’s prizewinner was achieved while converting an old Todmorden schoolhouse.

She said: “To be recognised as a designer at this level is incredible.”

The company’s head office is in Rossendale and it has a showroom in Brownhill Drive, Blackburn.
