Crown Lane Studio Press Release:

Crown Lane Studio winners of “Best Green Business” and “Best Overall Business” at the Merton Best Business Awards 2015

From a tiny studio in a tin roofed garage to an award winning studio complex in Morden Town Centre, Crown Lane Studio has become a winning destination for high calibre music production which in turn has enhanced the credibility of local artists. “Coming runner up for the ‘Extra Mile’ award is great recognition of all the work we do over and above every day studio life.” said Ruth Merriman, one half of the husband and wife director team. “Whether that’s taking the lead in the LoveMorden team; supporting the valuable work of our charities YoungMinds and Zimkids; offering work experience placements; and partnering with local organisations such as Merton Music Foundation and Merton Creatives, we see value in investing in the wider community.”

Over the past few years, Crown Lane has been striving to be a Carbon Neutral studio, this has been achieved recently at their Eco Studio Launch back in April. John Merriman added: “We have been trying to make as many small changes as we can, so that our planet is actually enhanced by the business that we run rather than damaged. This is an ongoing process and we are currently forming a partnership with Sustainable Merton to support the orchards they are planting across the borough.”

At the awards night their table erupted when they won best overall business in Merton, presented by WSM’s Simon Marsh. “We were totally shocked! Getting to the finals of the Merton Best Business Awards was recognition enough for what we do behind the scenes for our clients, our town and our environment. However, to be runner up for ‘The Extra Mile Award’, Winner of ‘The Best Green Business Award’ and then receive the ‘Overall Best Business Award’ was simply amazing. The atmosphere all night was of genuine celebration and to share the moment with so many friends and other worthy winners is something we
won’t forget in a hurry!”
