Seahaven Business Awards
Basepoint Newhaven sponsored the recent Seahaven Business Awards Presidents Choice 'Lifetime Achievers' 2013 held on Friday 10th May at Woody’s at Peacehaven Golf Club.
Newhaven Chamber of Commerce held the awards event in order to celebrate excellence in local businesses in the Seahaven area. This year the Newhaven Enterprise Centre sponsored the President's 'Lifetime Achievement Award' – nominations were invited for businesses that deserve to be recognised for their long-term business contribution in the Seahaven area. Winners were Jean and Margaret Cantell from Studio Tempo.
Studio Tempo opened its doors 60 years ago in 1953 in Newhaven High Street and is still going strong today. When the studio opened in 1953 Jean Cantell started teaching ballet, tap, latin and ballroom dancing. Her sister joined her at the studio in 1963. Since 1953, they have taught hundreds, if not thousands, of students in the Seahaven area how to dance and their work has had far reaching effects into the community. Jean and her sister Margaret are still teaching dance every week at the same premises, 60 years on.
This business has enriched the lives of many, many people over the last 60 years and truly deserves to be rewarded.
Runners up included Peter Crowley from Wave Leisure and Paul Boswell of Meeching Estate Agents
