Staff at Middleton Grange Shopping Centre in Hartlepool have been nominated for two top industry awards.

The annual Sceptre awards celebrate the best practice and people from shopping centres across the country.

Retail executive Suzanne Chaney has been singled out for her impressive work with retailers in the Retail Liaison of the year category. For the other award, Energy Management of the Year, the whole team were nominated.

Centre manager Mark Rycraft said: “This really is a fabulous honour for us.

“The Sceptre Awards are the most prestigious accolades in the shopping centre industry.

“We’re so thrilled to have been recognised alongside other management teams, retailers and suppliers from across the country for demonstrating real excellence.”

Speaking of Suzanne’s nomination, Mr Rycraft added: “We’re all thrilled for Suzanne personally.

“It’s a testament to the fantastic work she does with all of our 140 retailers, that she has been short-listed for this award.

“Suzanne exemplifies what we’re trying to achieve at the centre.

“She’s an integral part of the team here, and I’m delighted that she has been acknowledged by our industry in this way.”

The Middleton Grange team will attend a glittering event in London on June 21 where the winners will be announced.
