Local MP supports Excellence in Business Awards
Our area has outstanding businesses ensuring a healthy local economy and almost full employment. The Harrogate Advertiser Excellence in Business awards celebrates the achievements of those businesses, their owners and their teams.
This year’s awards ceremony was held at the Pavilions in Harrogate and was attended by hundreds from the business community.
“I have started my own businesses and worked in some very large businesses including Bettys and Taylors. I know how important business is and that small businesses are the backbone of our local and national economy. That is why it was such an honour to be at the awards ceremony.”Andrew Jones, MP for Harrogate & Knaresborough
