Skipton Business Awards 2018

1:02am 22nd February 2018

Several local businesses are celebrating as the shortlisted finalists of the Skipton Business Awards 2018 have been announced.

The working party of organisers is delighted to have attracted so many entries in this second year of the awards which aims to showcase businesses in Skipton and the BD23 postcode area. After much deliberation, the judges selected a shortlist of finalists for each of the entered categories.

Matt Cornish, Head Judge on the panel said: 

“It was good to see so many new entrants this year. The quality of entries, and particularly the strength of the supplementary information from those shortlisted, really highlighted how these brilliant businesses contribute to the community.”

Wendy Lawson, Awards Coordinator added:

“We are looking forward to showcasing the awards’ shortlisted finalists and winners. I know it was a difficult task for the judges to make selections from such an eclectic mix of businesses, which is why we have a panel with different views to offer. We’d like to thank every business which took time to submit an entry; you make the awards what it is.”

The finalists were assessed by the judging panel consisting of independent business experts, Alison Davies, Head of Digital, Skipton Building Society, Helen Clarke, Area Business Manager for Leeds and Area, Barclays Bank plc, Wendy Bateson, Estate Administrator, Broughton Hall Estate, Geraldine Thompson, BID Manager & Director, Skipton BID and Matt Cornish, Account Manager, AKA PR.  Winners of each category, including overall Skipton Business of the Year, will be revealed at a prestigious ceremony to take place at The Rendezvous Hotel on Thursday 22nd March from 6.30pm.

The awards are supported by headline sponsor Skipton Building Society, twelve category sponsors, winners’ champagne sponsor Pentelow Practice and table centre sponsor AWB Charlesworth Solicitors. Skipton BID will also be announcing the winner of The Best Bar None Award.
