This weekend we’ll be joining in the royal celebrations at HQ and in over 80 of our stores with everything red, white and blue!

As we prepare for this weekend’s celebrations we remember the day when we were proud to be presented with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, one of the UK’s most prestigious business accolades.


The UK’s most prestigious business award was hand delivered by Her Majesty’s representative in our county, the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire The Rt Hon the Lord Shuttleworth KCVO, with Deputy Lieutenants Robert Webb JP DL and Carl Hankinson DL and cadet Daniel Wade in attendance. We were also delighted to be joined by our MP Rosie Cooper, the Mayor of West Lancashire Nikki Hennessy and John Saunders, the Chief Executive British Footwear Association.

Hotter Founder Stewart Houlgrave and ‘It’s A Shoe Thing’ Editor Melanie Killilea were honoured to be invited to Buckingham Palace in July last year to officially receive the award along with the Royal family, MPs, dignitaries and other winners.

From everyone at Hotter, we’d like to wish Her Majesty The Queen a very happy 90th birthday.
