Pendle Business Awards has fast become one of Lancashire’s most prestigious events in the business calendar, putting the spotlight on the borough’s businesses which are market leaders in their field.

The ceremonywill be held at the luxurious Fence Gate Inn on Thursday June 9.

Winners will once again receive the coveted Pendle trophy, designed and created by Merc Engineering.

Dennis Mendoros, chairman of Pendle Vision Board, added: “I was delighted, but not surprised, to hear that the calibre of applications was extremely strong this year.

“This year the Most Outstanding Business of the Year (micro) category was most popular with 16 entries, followed by Business Technology & Innovation of the Year and Rising Star of the Year which received 10 each.

“Our judges have had a difficult task whittling them down because everyone who has entered deserves recognition for their fantastic achievements.”

Councillor Mohammed Iqbal, leader of Pendle Council, said: “A big, big thank you goes out to everyone who entered.

“This year we received 80 entries, the most to date, from companies of all shapes and sizes across Pendle. And I can tell you that we’re really excited to see more and more companies coming forward.”

The awards is supported by many local companies including Farmhouse Biscuits, Training 2000, Barnfield Construction, JD Engineering, Merc Aerospace, Nelson and Colne College, KM Business Solutions, Daisy Communications, Svenska Handelsbanken, Pendle Rise Shopping Centre and Printoff.
