Finalists named for The Leamington Business Awards

THE FINALISTS of The Leamington Business Awards (LBA) have been chosen from more than 180 entries.

Established in 2014 by Jonathan Smith, of Talk Business UK, the LBAs celebrate the work of local businesses, individuals and organisations.

Jonathan said: ”Once again we have been overwhelmed by the quality of the entries we have received for the Leamington Business Awards. The businesses and their owners have certainly shown huge resilience and inventiveness and met all the recent challenges head on.”

The winners will be chosen across 12 categories and announced at a ceremony at The Drawing Board and 1 Mill Street in Leamington, tomorrow (Friday March 18).

They will receive awards designed by 3D design students at Warwickshire College. Guest of honour Matt Western MP will also be in attendance.

Nigel Shanahan, co-founder of 1 Mill Street co-working space and offices, said: “Fundamentally, this is why 1 Mill Street exists, to help our members and the wider community of Leamington to succeed in their business whilst having a lot of fun along the way.”

The judges are Roger Scott of Lloyds Bank and Sarah Windrum the Chair or the CWLEP.

A winner from all the categories will also be selected for the Judges’ Choice Award – Business of the Year.
