Judging for the eighth annual Courier Business Awards, which will celebrate the best in the business community of Calderdale, will take place next week so submit your nominations.

The Courier Business Awards provide the opportunity to demonstrate to a wider audience what a great place Calderdale is to work and do business.

The event will be held at the Venue, Barkisland, on Friday, November 20 and Courier Editor John Kenealy is encouraging as many businesses as possible to put themselves or another company forward.

He said: “The diverse range of business is amazing, new businesses have cropped up in recent years, they have succeeded against the odds and are flying high.

“Established companies dating back decades have successfully showed resilience during a particularly difficult economic period to ‘weather the storm’, and hopefully can look forward to many more successful years.

“I would urge everyone to ensure we get as many nominations as possible - there will be a category to suit and I look forward to meeting the short listed nominees on the big night in November.”
