BARRY Hyde, mem­ber of the Pro­mot­ing Rossendale Part­ner­ship Board, takes a look at The Rossendale Busi­ness Awards THE Rossendale Busi­ness Awards are or­gan­ised by Val­ley at Work and are an an­nual showcase for the achieve­ment, qual­ity and di­ver­sity of the lo­cal busi­nesses and en­ter­pris­ing peo­ple who make Rossendale such a great place to live, work and visit.

The 2017 com­pe­ti­tion will be the 8th Rossendale Busi­ness Awards, which have grown to be­come the largest lo­cal busi­ness event of the year.

Last year more than 100 busi­nesses were nom­i­nated and over 200 busi­ness peo­ple filled the River­side in Whit­worth to ca­pac­ity for the cer­e­mony.

This year there are 19 award cat­e­gories – Val­ley at Work, Busi­ness of the Year, New Busi­ness, Ar­ti­san Busi­ness, En­ter­pris­ing Young Per­son, Em­ployer of the Year, Mi­cro Busi­ness, Com­mu­nity Busi­ness, Tourism Award, In­de­pen­dent Re­tailer, Cre­ative Busi­ness, Part-time Busi­ness, Cus­tomer Friendly Busi­ness, Sole Trader, En­ter­pris­ing Woman, Ap­pren­tice­ship, Pride of our Val­ley, Ser­vice Busi­ness and the Rossendale Free Press Award. Any mem­ber of the Rossendale com­mu­nity is able to nom­i­nate a busi­ness, or­gan­i­sa­tion or in­di­vid­ual for an award in the Rossendale Busi­ness Awards 2017.

All of the awards are spon­sored by lo­cal busi­nesses, with­out which the Awards sim­ply could not hap­pen. So the or­gan­is­ers would like to thank them for their con­tin­ued sup­port. All of the cat­e­gories, de­tails of those who qual­ify and a sim­ple on­line nom­i­na­tion form can be found on their web­site at www.r-

Nom­i­na­tions are cur­rently open, with the clos­ing date for nom­i­na­tions be­ing Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 20. This is a great op­por­tu­nity for you to nom­i­nate a busi­ness, group or in­di­vid­ual that you feel is wor­thy of pub­lic recog­ni­tion. The Award cer­e­mony will once again be held at River­side in Whit­worth on the evening of Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 15.
