Club Mirror Awards 2012


The annual Club Mirror Awards took place on November 8th at the Palace Hotel in Manchester where the Concorde Club were nominated in three categories, namely ‘Catering Club of the Year’, ‘Entertainment Club of the Year’ and ‘Grounds Team of the Year’ (new category).

Approximately 50 Clubs from throughout Britain were represented with everyone dressed in fine attire.  The evening started with drinks in the lounge followed by wine and dinner in the splendid large hall, with the awards ceremony then taking place.

The host for the evening and the presenter of the awards was TV presenter and winner of  Strictly Come Dancing, Chris Hollins. 

We were unsuccessful in the ‘Entertainment Club of the Year’ award and although did not win the ‘Catering Club of the Year’ award have since been informed that we will be receiving a special award which will be presented here at the Club. 

The highlight of the evening was winning the new category ‘Grounds Team of the Year’ award, well deserved as our groundsmen have already won awards for our wonderful grounds.  Groundsmen Malcolm Gardner and Tom Ash went up to receive the award, Jonathan Barnes was not at the event but is the third groundsman to make up this formidable team, all three are worthy winners of this award.

The evening finished in the bar where everyone celebrated until the early hours of the morning!
