By Stuart Laundy - Senior Reporter
PREPARATIONS have begun for the eighth Teesdale Business Awards.
After missing a year, the awards will be presented at a gala evening at The Witham, in Barnard Castle, on Wednesday, February 12, 2020.
The awards are organised by officials at Enterprise House, on the Harmire Enterprise Park, in Barnard Castle.
Peter Dixon, one of the organisers, said: “The Teesdale Business Awards provides an opportunity to showcase and promote the successes of our local business community.”
As in previous years, there will be 12 Award catagories:
Apprentice of the Year
Entrepreneur of the Year
Best Community Engagement Project
Best Social Enterprise
Best Customer Focus
Most Innovative Business
Best Marketing Initiative
Best Business Trading Outside Teesdale
Growth Business of the Year
Best New Business
Mr Dixon said Enterprise House is now looking for 12 sponsors to support the awards.
“This involves making a financial contribution towards the running costs and being actively involved in judging, shortlisting and selecting the winners.
“Sponsors are also required to attend the awards ceremony to present the trophies.”
