Gloucestershire Gateway Trust: proud winner of Outstanding Contribution to Local Food Development, Western Daily Press Food and Farming Awards 2017!

Award winnerThe vision of the Gateway Trust’s CEO Mark Gale for a motorway services station that would directly benefit people living in nearby communities, and his tireless work over two decades to make it a reality, was honoured with the Outstanding Contribution to Local Food Development award.

Gloucester Services on the M5 opened three years ago, since when it has provided a significant boost to farmers and food companies from across the South West. It was made possible after Mark approached Westmorland, the family-run company responsible for the award-winning Tebay Services on the M6 in Cumbria, and worked with it to set up Gloucestershire Gateway Ltd.
