Chippenham BID has released the names of high-flying businesses that have won a place in the finals of the Chippenham Business of the Year Awards.

Chippenham Business Awards is the biggest B2B event in Chippenham, giving businesses within a five-mile radius of the town the opportunity to receive recognition for the hard work they put into making their company successful.

It also offers networking opportunities for those who attend the awards ceremony, helping to build relationships with future clients, suppliers and partners in the local area.

The judging took place on January 7 at The Angel Hotel, Chippenham with the judging panel made from the sponsors. The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, February 13 at Neeld Community and Arts Centre.

Chippenham BID Manager, Kathryn Crosweller, said, “This year’s judging was once again very challenging, with several incredibly worthy winners across the board. The Chippenham Business Awards reflects the hugely varied range of business in Chippenham, both in size and industry, and gives companies some fantastic opportunities to grow their business. We are looking forward to an evening to celebrate their achievements.”
