COMPANIES from across the area have days left to be involved in this year’s Observer and Gazette Business Awards.
The awards recognise the best businesses in Chichester, Midhurst and Petworth, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton and the surrounding areas.
The Gazette is now calling on businesses in Littlehampton, and the surrounding area the paper serves, to get involved in the celebrations.
Firms wishing to take part have until Monday, March 3, to take part in the event, which is being held at Hilton Avisford Park in Arundel on April 4.
HiTek Power, based in Hawthorn Street, Littlehampton, has already been nominated in the manufacturing and construction category of the awards.
This week, three new sponsors joined the awards.
They are Chichester District Council, Wannops Solicitors and Peregrine House.
Once again, ITV Meridian presenter Fred Dinenage will be presenting the awards ceremony, and the event will also feature a talk from Andrew Ball, global corporate communications manager for Rolls Royce and Phil Packer, MBE, of the British Inspiration Trust.
The Observer and Gazette Business awards, in association with Chichester Chamber of Commerce and Industry, are set to be bigger and better than ever.
Entries will feature an enhanced total of 19 categories, spanning from small business (up to ten employees), through to the lifetime achievement winner.
The event is a chance for businesses to receive the recognition they deserve and to acknowledge the efforts made by employees and colleagues.
It is also a time to relax and enjoy a black tie event and be entertained by a celebrity compère.
