THERE is just a week to go until the Cheshire Business Awards presentation evening and excitement is mounting as we wait to find out who has won our coveted trophies.

The awards will be presented at a black-tie gala evening at Chester’s Queen Hotel on November 19.

This year’s event promises to be a real celebration of all that is great about business across the county, as well as a wonderful opportunity to network with firms large and small.

Despite the challenging economic climate, more firms than ever have put their names forward for our awards and the high standard of entries presented our independent panel of judges with a real headache.

Host for the evening will be TV newsreader and presenter, Lucy Meacock who is a great supporter of Cheshire businesses.

“The best news is that we have had more entries this year than ever before. It just shows that even in a tough climate there is still cause for celebration,” she said.

The event will start at 6.30pm with a drinks reception, followed by the awards presentations and a four-course meal. The awards ceremony is due to conclude at approximately 11pm, followed by entertainment by the fabulous eight-piece soul band the Funky Doctors.
