The Mellors Group has been announced as a Family Business of the Year finalist at The Nottinghamshire Live Business Awards, with its recent renovations at Fantasy Island Skegness singled out for praise.


The Mellors Group has been named as one of three finalists in the Family Business of the Year category at The Nottinghamshire Live Business Awards 2021.

The Skegness Pier and Fantasy Island operator was shortlisted for the Handley House-sponsored award due to its “wealth of expertise, experience, knowledge and vision.”

“A fourth-generation family-run business, Mellors Group has grown into a world leader, but remains committed to the community values it was founded on,” stated Lincolnshire Live.

“It is passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes diversity and embraces beliefs, accepts differences and welcomes all physical abilities. Its brands include Skegness Pier, Fantasy Island and Jem Leisure, with investments and strategies altering in line with its analysis of market trends.”

The recognition comes after the Mellors Group recently completed £2m of refurbishments at its two Lincolnshire coast sites, with the addition of new rides, bars and entertainment experiences designed to “place Skegness and Ingoldmells firmly back on the map.”

Skegness Pier, which joined the Mellors Group most recently through a £3m deal finalised in February, has welcomed Playa on the Pier, Clip n’ Climb, and immersive play area Hero Zone as new attractions for 2021.

Responding to the finalist announcement, a spokesperson for Mellors stated “we’re so happy to have been nominated for Family Business of the Year at The Nottinghamshire Live Business Awards, what an honour!”

The award ceremony itself will take place at East Midlands Conference Centre on 14 October, with Mellors competing against online pharmacy group UK Meds and information management company Shredall SDS for the Family Business title.

“This award is for established family businesses across all industry sectors that can demonstrate sustained success across a broad range of measures, whilst ensuring all family values are followed,” states the award description.

“The judges will also be looking at the aspirations of your business to demonstrate how both current and future family generations will be involved in the growth of the business.”
