We are proud and delighted to annnounce that at last night's Family Business United awards, Bastows were honoured as the UK Construction and Property Family Business of the Year.
The event was hosted by Farrer & Co in Lincoln's Inn Fields in the heart of London and the city felt very beautiful last night as we joined other family businesses. Familiar faces were greeted and new connections made as we shared stories and cheered each other on as the awards were announced.

We were thrilled to receive the UK award for our sector- a completely unexpected moment as I can testify; my acceptance speech began with an flabbergasted me saying "Blimey!"
It was wonderful to be shortlisted as a regional finalist too alongside some truly brilliant and diverse companies and our congratulations go to F Hinds Ltd, the deserving winners of the regional title.
Thank you to the judging panel, to Paul Andrews who is the heart and soul of Family Business United, and to all our fellow family business nominees and winners. We really are keeping the economy going and the values of family alive around the UK.
