THE search has be­gun for Buck­ing­hamshire’s best com­pa­nies in a com­pe­ti­tion cel­e­brat­ing business tal­ent.

Buck­ing­hamshire Business First is now ac­cept­ing nom­i­na­tions for the best business in the county as part of its an­nual awards.

Ms Dunn added: “Just be­ing nom­i­nated al­lows a business to cre­ate a buzz with cus­tomers and it is a great op­por­tu­nity to give your staff recog­ni­tion and take pride in what they are do­ing.

“We have busi­nesses that have en­tered for dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories which gives them an op­por­tu­nity to show off their strengths.
