The winners of Bradford on Avon’s second business awards have been revealed.
On Thursday October 13, 2017, the town’s business community came together to celebrate the BoA Business Awards at St Margaret’s Hall.
The 2017 awards follow the success of the inaugural BoA Business Awards in 2016, designed to celebrate the diversity of the town and the surrounding villages business landscape.
This year there were 113 nominees in 16 categories and over 4,500 people voted, nearly double the figure of the 2016 awards.
Andrew Eberlin, chair of BoA Business and award organiser said: “We’re thrilled the town is getting behind our award scheme and is supporting the variety of predominantly independent businesses in Bradford on Avon. Competition this year was fierce; in several categories businesses won by just a few votes!”
The award ceremony and dinner was a sell-out with 120 tickets sold. Jackie Allan, owner of Piha, a shop in the town and also a BoA Business Award organiser said: “In future years, we might have to look at another venue the awards have been such a success.
