Pendle Business Awards winners

Honours were shared amongst ten companies and entrepreneurs in a range of categories. Judges had been tasked with assessing entrants on their performance over the previous 12 months in relation to job creation, staff motivation, development of products and markets and their sustainability efforts.

Capping a spectacular evening, Boundary Mill boss Richard Bannister took home the prestigious chairman’s award for lifetime achievement.

The event was organised by Pendle Vision and Pendle Council, and winners received elegant glass and metal sculptures inspired by Pendle Hill, produced by Barrowford's Merc Engineering.
