A Fakenham company is celebrating after winning a prestigious national prize in the UK’s only awards scheme for the private hire and chauffeur industry.

Fakenham chaffeur company Near and Far has won the silver award in the chauffeur company category for between one and ten vehicles.

This category is designed to reward the smallest operators, and the judges couldn’t resist the appeal of Near and Far, a relatively new chauffeur and wedding business driven – in every sense of the word – by Chris Cockrell, who was delighted with the result.

He said: “It’s a massive accolade and good for Norfolk and King’s Lynn.”

Near and Far offers a complete range of services – everything from airport runs to weddings to VIP/close protection chauffeuring. Everything is presented immaculately and the standards of professionalism are maintained at the highest of levels.

Professional driver magazine’s QSi Awards ceremony in November recognised the achievements of Britain’s top chauffeur and private hire operators.

The awards, open to every chauffeur and private hire company in the UK, are designed to recognise operators and individuals who demonstrate excellent standards of quality, service and innovation. Gold, silver and bronze awards were presented in ten categories, three of which Near and Far were shortlisted for. The event was held at the Effingham Park Hotel, near Gatwick Airport.
