The time has come to celebrate and be inspired as the finalists for the Havering Business Awards 2017 have been announced.
Havering Council has received more than 60 nominations with entries judged by a panel including its sponsors real estate investment trust Segro, accountants Haines Watts, Time 107.5FM, as well as Romford business Neopost and senior council staff.
Director of neighbourhoods and member of the judging panel Steve Moore said: “Judging this year’s awards was tough.
“Every entry was of a very high standard and each one was unique which made the decision harder.
“I’m very proud of the quality of businesses that we have in this borough and these awards give them the true recognition that they deserve.”
