Fi­nal­ists line up to bid for top hon­ours

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS - RHI­AN­NON MCDOWALL

THE fi­nal­ists for this year’s North East Cheshire Busi­ness Awards have been cho­sen after a lengthy judg­ing process.

More than 25 judges picked the fi­nal­ists for this year’s awards, which cel­e­brate the cream of the busi­ness com­mu­nity in Mac­cles­field and around the area.

The short­list for the 11 cat­e­gories was cho­sen at an event hosted by Or­bit De­vel­op­ments’ Green­way House on Tyther­ing­ton Busi­ness Park, which gave judges the op­por­tu­nity to meet cat­e­gory en­trants face to face and gather sup­port­ing ev­i­dence to choose the win­ner, with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from more than 34 com­pa­nies and or­gan­i­sa­tions given the op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote their busi­ness.

Sue Bow­den from Mac­cles­field Cham­ber of Com­merce, the lead or­gan­iser of the event said: “Judg­ing has gone well to­day and we wish all our fi­nal­ists the best of luck. They now have a nail-bit­ing to wait un­til Novem­ber 17 th – our awards night at The Mere Golf Re­sort and Spa in Knutsford – to find out whether they have won.”

Paul McLe­man, leas­ing Di­rec­tor at Or­bit De­vel­op­ments, added: “The qual­ity of en­tries for the North East Cheshire Busi­ness Awards were ex­tremely high this year and this re­flects the num­ber of fan­tas­tic busi­nesses based within Wilm­slow, Knutsford, Mac­cles­field and the sur­round­ing ar­eas.

“As a re­sult, the judg­ing process was tough and choos­ing a win­ner for each cat­e­gory took a lot of de­lib­er­a­tion. How­ever, the hard bit is over and we’re all look­ing for­ward to the awards evening at The Mere where the win­ners will be re­vealed and cel­e­brated.”

Mu­sic mogul Pete Water­man will be the guest speaker at a glit­ter­ing black tie event when the win­ners are an­nounced.

Tick­ets have been sell­ing fast for the pre­sen­ta­tion, din­ner and dance, but there is still time to buy, even if your busi­ness hasn’t made the short­list, it’s still a great op­por­tu­nity to min­gle with other busi­nesses - it’s never too early to pick up tips for next year.

The gala din­ner at The Mere in Knutsford is on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 17.

Any­one is wel­come to at­tend the evening, with tick­ets priced at £59.50 plus VAT.

Tick­ets can be booked at

Any­one in­ter­ested in spon­sor­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties should con­tact Sue at Mac­cles­field Cham­ber.
