The winners will be announced at a glamorous awards night to be held on February 8, and now Havering Council would like to invite businesses of all sizes to attend the ceremony at Rainham’s CEME Conference Centre.

Those in attendance can expect fabulous entertainment, pre-dinner drinks, a three-course dinner with wine plus an unprecedented opportunity to network with other businesses from across the borough.

The Recorder is one of the corporate sponsors for this year’s event.

Editor Lindsay Jones said: “We are proud to sponsor this year’s Havering Business Awards because it is vital to support and encourage the borough’s innovative and creative entrepreneurs.”

Other sponsors including radio station Time FM, and digital marketing agency Respondit.

Lorna Waters, Time FM station manager, said “Time 107.5 supports the Havering Business Awards because as a Local Radio Station working with many businesses, we appreciate how essential it is to keep local business alive and thriving.

“It’s also important to recognize and reward the amazing talent there is in Havering in order to inspire future entrepreneurs in the borough.”

And Dave Hodder, Respondit managing director, was similarly supportive.

He added: ““We decided to sponsor the Havering Business Awards as we believe the awards are vital in supporting local businesses across the borough.”

In October, last year’s Apprentice of the Year, Nancy Brincat, shared with the Recorder how the Havering Business Awards had helped change her life.

She said: “Winning the award has made me believe in myself. I’m more independent and even compete in dog grooming.

“I will definitely encourage companies to nominate their apprentices as this has changed my life and apart from this, I just really enjoyed the awards night.”

Tickets for the awards night are now on sale and can be purchased for £70 each from www.haveringbusinessawards.co.uk
