By Anita Jaynes on 26 February, 2019

The winners of the 2019 Chippenham Business Awards can now be revealed following a glittering ceremony at the town’s Neeld Hall on Thursday 21st February.

Over 160 people attended the black tie dinner celebration, organised by Chippenham Business Improvement District and supported by headline sponsor Awdry Bailey & Douglas Solicitors.

The awards now in their third year are the largest business to business event in the town and were 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 of Chippenham BID said, “It almost sounds trite but to be in a room with so many passionate, driven and successful people is a very humbling experience. There are some fantastic businesses in and around Chippenham, and we are delighted to be able to bring them together each year at the Chippenham Business Awards.”

The awards received wide support from a range of local businesses who sponsored each award, as well as drinks reception sponsor Berkley Square Private Clients Ltd.  Tom Paget, Partner at Awdry, Bailey & Douglas said,“This really is a great event which Awdry Bailey & Douglas are extremely proud to support. There are so many fantastic businesses in Chippenham who deserve recognition for what they have achieved, and these awards are the perfect way to do that. Thank you to all those that entered and huge congratulations to this year’s winners.”
