OR­GAN­IS­ERS be­hind this year’s North East Cheshire Busi­ness Awards say the event is a chance to rub shoul­ders with the best of the area’s busi­ness com­mu­nity.

There are now just a cou­ple of weeks un­til the event, which fea­tures 10 cat­e­gories of awards to cel­e­brate the best firms in Mac­cles­field and sur­round­ing area.

There has been a record num­ber of busi­nesses en­ter­ing this year. The short­list of fi­nal­ists in each cat­e­gory has been picked and judges have the tough job of choos­ing the win­ners.

The firms will be pre­sented with awards at the gala din­ner event at The Mere on Novem­ber 19.

Or­gan­is­ers from Mac­cles­field Cham­ber of Com­merce urge peo­ple to get tick­ets for the event, which they say is the ul­ti­mate net­work­ing op­por­tu­nity.

Sue Bow­den, man­ager of Mac­cles­field Cham­ber of Com­merce, said: “The fi­nal­ists have been short­listed and the fo­cus now is on the gala din­ner.

“Our fifth year has seen a record num­ber of com­pa­nies en­ter­ing and the stan­dard and level of en­tries has been out­stand­ing, so the gala din­ner is go­ing to be an ex­cit­ing cul­mi­na­tion of a fan­tas­tic year for the awards.

“Tick­ets are sell­ing fast now that the fi­nal­ists have been an­nounced, so book your ta­ble and join us for what prom­ises to be the big­gest busi­ness event in North East Cheshire.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic black tie event, start­ing at 6.45pm with a cham­pagne re­cep­tion fol­lowed by a three­course din­ner and the awards cer­e­mony, and we are de­lighted to have James Timp­son OBE as our guest speaker.

“Ev­ery­one knows the Timp­son name from the high street but there’s a lot more to tell, so we look for­ward to hear­ing James’ fas­ci­nat­ing story.

“And to round off the evening with a cel­e­bra­tory party at­mos­phere, there will be danc­ing and mu­sic from Nathan Turner, then car­riages at 12.30pm. The awards are a fan­tas­tic net­work­ing op­por­tu­nity.”

The night is also a chance to sup­port well-loved Sut­ton char­ity The Rossendale Trust, which cares for adults with learn­ing and phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties.

Do­na­tions made on the night and money from a raf­fle and auc­tion will go to the char­ity.

The gala din­ner at The Mere in Knutsford is on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 19.
