DANIEL Day Lewis, Tilda Swinton, Marion Cotillard and Javier Bardem were just a few of the winners at the Oscars this year.

However, they were not the only Oscar winners, as a hotel from Hatfield has also been honoured.

Beales Hotel, on Comet Way, also received an 'Oscar' for leading the way in green issues.

The family-run company beat nationally recognised companies to be voted overall winner of the national 2008 Sustainable City Awards.

They were applauded for their successful reductions in landfill waste - 60 per cent, water use - 40 per cent and carbon dioxide emissions - over 200 tonnes of CO2 and 50 tonnes of carbon.

Managing director Andrew Beale said: "We are absolutely thrilled to not only be highly commended within the category for small and medium enterprises but to scoop the overall winners award as well.

"All of the team have worked very hard to support our goals of local food from local suppliers, reduce our waste and benefit the environment.

"We are deeply proud.
