The final shortlist has been drawn up for this year’s Brighouse Echo Business Awards ahead of a glittering night to celebrate local success.

The awards cover ten categories and feature all types of business; from the major employer to the corner shop, from start-ups to established companies.

Judges spent hours deliberating over all the entries before drawing up the final shortlist.

Brighouse Echo news editor Dominic Brown said: “As usual, the judges had a very difficult task putting together the shortlist for our Business Awards.

“Going through all the entries highlighted the wonderful achievements of businesses in the Brighouse area over the past 12 months.

“Thanks to everyone who took the time to send in nominations. Congratulations to all those who have been shortlisted and good luck for the big night on May 7.

“We’re looking forward to another fantastic celebration of the best of business in Brighouse.”

The Brighouse Business Awards culminate in what promises to be another fantastic presentation evening on Thursday, May 7, at Brighouse Sports Club, and will be hosted by well-known television presenter Clare Frisby.
