Business awards finalists revealed

Ruth Pennington from sponsors of the Small Business Award PBA Accountants discusses the shortlist with fellow judges and sponsors

The shortlist has been announced for this year’s Newbury Weekly News Best in Business Awards.

A record number of entries was received and judges had the difficult task of picking their finalists.

However, the judging is now over and the countdown to the awards night is well and truly on.

The Best in Business Awards, now in their third year, celebrate all that is great about business in West Berkshire and North Hampshire.

This year there are nine award categories, each sponsored by a local company.

The winners of each category will go head-to-head for the overall prize, the coveted Best in Business Award, sponsored by Cobbs Farm Shop & Kitchen, at the dinner at Newbury Racecourse on Friday, November 1.

The awards have, over the past few years, become one of the biggest nights in the business calendar,

Last year’s event was a sell-out and tickets for this year are already being snapped up.

Space is limited to 300, so people are being encouraged to book early.
