Kevin Marwick was once, twice, three times a winner at this year’s Uckfield Business Awards.
The Picture House Cinema and Restaurant were nominated in two categories of the awards, run by Uckfield Chamber of Commerce, and were surprised to end up winning three.
The Picture House won both categories it was nominated for, Business of the Year and cinema owner Kevin Markwick for Business Person of the Year (Male).
The surprise came when cinema owner Kevin Markwick also received the Outstanding Achievement Award, awarded to an individual who has demonstrated outstanding achievements in their business life.
