The Best of Britain Business Awards – Winners announced!

We’ve been giving businesses across Britain the chance to win a Best of Britain award for their region, to have their business recognised for their outstanding service, achievements and overall business ethos, making them one of the 'Best of Britain 2018' companies in the UK.

In addition to the award recognition itself, each award comes with a cash prize of £500* to benefit each business in whichever way they want. This could be used to fund a team night out or to buy a communal television, the list is endless.

This bold award supports, celebrates and recognises leading class examples of success in business, with just five categories, split regionally, Wales, Scotland, North of England, South of England and Midlands, we’ve seen some outstanding entries this year, which has made being crowned a winner tougher than ever.

Throughout the month of July we saw entries from Aberdeenshire all the way down to London, and now we’re excited to announce the WINNERS for each region!
