Jonathan Smith of the Leamington Business Forum, and a former awards judge, said: “The Leamington Business Awards is specifically designed to suit businesses of all sizes and stages. The broad range of categories means there is something to suit everyone, including specific awards for non-profit making organisations and new start-ups.

“For the first time last year, organisations outside Leamington had the chance to enter the South Warwickshire Achievement Awards and this year we have also introduced the Warwick District Charity of the Year Award and the Property Business of the Year Award while the Young Person of the Year Award was open to 16-26-year-olds.”
