AN USK business was named as a winner at this year’s Welsh Business Awards at a packed City Hall in Cardiff.

Morris’s of Usk, a garden centre in Llanbadoc, were announced as Family Business of the Year.

The store comprises products for pets, home furnishings and gift shopping, as well as a restaurant, family farm and farm shop.

The judges praised the business for its family values and ethos, and recognised the family's "strong and sustainable model".

In a joint statement Kate Morris, Managing Director, and Helen Morris, Farm Shop Manager, expressed their delight.

“We are so thrilled to have been named Family Business of the Year, we can’t believe it,” they said.

“I know we were up against some really strong businesses, so this is a massive achievement for us.

“We’re very lucky to have such a strong family network who all really care for the business and work so hard to see it succeed.”

The event saw business from across Wales come together to celebrate their achievement and success through 2019 across 10 categories.

The South Wales Chamber of Commerce welcomed Minister for the Economy, Transport and North Wales Ken Skates AM to address guests at the event.

Mr Skates added: “The award winners tonight represent the best of Welsh business in 2020. We’ve seen some of the most innovative and cutting-edge companies growing their firms and reaching out into new and expanding markets.

“Importantly, it has been great to see so many of them doing it in a way that prepares for the future. It’s inspiring to see so many of the winners break new ground in areas such as decarbonisation, new technology and in building a more diverse workforce.”
