Happy International Women’s Day from all at PACE!


Happy International Women's Day! Here's to a month of celebration and recognition of the strong women who inspire and encourage us.

We've featured our sous chef, Kayleigh Cox in our image. Not only is she an amazing chef she is the backbone of our kitchen. Kayleigh is hugely talented, conscientious and committed to developing personally and professionally - traits that every restaurant love their people to have. Kayleigh won the 'Unsung Hero' award at last week's Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards, an award that she truly deserves, and we feel is symbolic of the sometimes unnoticed power of women.

We'll be raising a toast later to all the women who positively influence our lives.

Throughout the month of International Women's Day we are supporting Liverpool's Women's Organisation who is the largest developer and deliverer of training and support for women in the UK. Visit our website to find out more.

Thanks again to Middlesbrough College, Molly, Steph, Melissa, Andrew for giving their time to judge, and to all concerned for a truly great day x
