Our History

The Awards were first set up in 2014 by local photographer Karen Massey and a team of volunteer business people. The team were keen to ensure the awards were for the benefit of the town, and awarded excellence within the local business community.

In 2016 the management of the Awards was passed to local accountancy firm HB&O who continued to develop the Awards and their growing support from the local business community.

In 2019 the baton was again passed on, this time to Talk Business UK who are working hard to ensure the continued success of the event.
