The winners for the 2021 Winchester Business Excellence Awards have been announced.
A celebration of sparkling customer service, innovation and hard work of businesses in the Winchester District, took place at the University of Winchester on September 2 attended by Steve Brine MP.
The awards were organised in partnership by the Hampshire Chronicle, Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and Winchester BID and were kindly sponsored by Dutton Gregory, Paris Smith, University of Winchester, Winchester BID and Winchester City Council who all joined together to celebrate the success of all the finalists and announce the overall winners.
Paul Spencer, executive director of the BID said: "It was wonderful to be able to host a live in-person awards ceremony this year with our partner organisers and the sponsors of the awards. After needing to move the ceremony online last year it was really special be able to celebrate the achievements of Winchester businesses and reward them for their commitment to excellence at the event this year."
