Congratulations to all of the winners at last night’s Sussex Business Awards.
The evening was hosted at South Lodge Hotel in Horsham where we were treated to a 3-course dinner and champagne reception, highly enjoyed by my young assistant Hannah as an introduction to her “first posh business do”. It was also lovely to be joined by daughter Sam and her partner plus What’s Happening magazine editor Mike Mendoza (despite his attempt to out-do me in the red bow tie stakes). Former England Rugby player Martin Bayfield compered the evening and really added some humour and fun to the whole event which saw 15 awards presented to the winning companies and individuals.
These awards celebrate the best in business across Sussex and so to be given one is a real achievement. We all know the difficulty of success in such times as these and this kind of recognition will hopefully encourage further individuals and businesses to strive for excellence.
My warm thanks to the organisers for what was a wonderful evening and I look forward to next year for the 25th ceremony!
