Fantastic number of entries to Pendle Business Awards 2016!

Wednesday, 23rd March 2016

The closing date for entries to Pendle Business Awards 2016, one of Lancashire’s most prestigious events, has now passed.

And this year more businesses than ever entered!

The judges are examining the entries and will be visiting those shortlisted over the next few weeks so they can present their case for winning an award.

Councillor Mohammed Iqbal, Leader of Pendle Council, said:  “Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter.

“We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve received 80 entries - the most entries ever - from companies of all shapes and sizes across the borough.

“After very careful consideration, we’ll announce the shortlist in April.”

Organised jointly by Pendle Vision and Pendle Council, the Awards, now in its fifth year, has become a popular event in the borough’s business calendar.

It’s being supported by many local companies and organisations which are sponsoring the event, including Farmhouse Biscuits, Training 2000, Barnfield Construction, JD Engineering, Merc Aerospace, Nelson and Colne Colleger, KM Business Solutions and Printoff.

The glittering ceremony and dinner will be held at the luxurious Fence Gate Inn on Thursday 9th June.

Shortlisted companies will be announced on Wednesday 18th April with the winners being announced on the night.

Winners will once again receive the coveted Pendle trophy - an elegant glass and metal sculpture inspired by Pendle Hill. It will be engraved with the winner’s name and the award category.

The trophies will be designed and made by local company Merc Engineering.

Dennis Mendoros, Chairman of Pendle Vision Board, added: “We’re fortunate in Pendle to have lots of dynamic companies at the cutting edge and world leaders in their field.

“Our local companies are key contributors to the success of Lancashire’s economy, helping make Pendle a better place. And we need to celebrate them!”
