By Anita Jaynes on 14 January, 2019

Chippenham Business Improvement District, organiser of the Chippenham Business Awards has announced its 2019 finalists.

The awards now in their third year are the largest business to business event in the town, supported by headline sponsor Awdry Bailey & Douglas Solicitors.

The award scheme was created to champion companies of all shapes and sizes from start-ups to global organisations and raise the profile of the Chippenham as a thriving place to live and work.

Kathryn Crosweller, Manager at Chippenham BID said: “12 judges made up the panel in this year’s hotly contested Chippenham Business Awards. With a 24% increase in the number of entries this year, there were some very challenging decisions to be made with an exceptionally high standard of entry in every category. What we have already seen from this process is that Chippenham is a thriving location for business, with an extremely diverse and rich local economy, and we are looking forward to an evening to celebrate this on 21st February.”
