A BUSINESS centre built in a former church has been recognised at an awards ceremony.
The Dearne Valley Business Centre on Coronation Road, Wath, which was built in the old Ebenezer Wesleyan Reform Church, opened in April.
Entrepreneurs Stephen and Julia Hollings forked out £100,000 to develop the premises — under the brand My Head Office — and were at the awards ceremony to receive their honour.
They won the Product category at leading property training company Legacy Education Alliance’s awards event at The Savoy Hotel in London.
The LEA Awards of Excellence event was hosted by athletes Roger Black and Steve Backley.
Mr Hollings said the couple were “delighted and proud” to be presented with the award which was presented in front of 300 guests.
He said: “The judges were very impressed with the concept of the business centre that offers coaching and support to its tenants’ successful transition from their home office to Head Office.
“The award was in recognition of all the demanding work put into the building converting a church to a business centre.
“They praised all the local craftsmen and suppliers who made everything possible.”
