The closing date for entering this year’s Havering Business Awards is looming and one of last year’s winners, Harrison Wipes, of Romford, is advising entrants on how to make the strongest bid.

This year the family business, which produces cloths and wipes, is sponsoring the Havering Business of the Year award.

Stephen Harrison, managing director of Harrison Wipes, said: “We decided to sponsor the award because we entered last year and won and we got a lot of enjoyment out of it.

“It’s a great benefit for staff and for customers.

“I would advise that anyone wishing to enter any of the awards puts themselves in the eyes and ears of the judges and thinks about what they would like to hear.

“Last year we won Business of the Year and it was really exciting, our staff were proud of their achievement and it gave them something to benchmark themselves against.”

Cllr Robert Benham, Havering Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “It’s great that one of our winners has come back to sponsor an award, it just shows how significant they are to the business community and I’m really pleased that Harrison Wipes got so much enjoyment out of the awards last year.”
