"We entered the Tunbridge Wells Business Awards 2016  as we have been in Tunbridge Wells for 25 years and there has never been an award/event before. There had been a great buzz since the Tunbridge Wells Times was launched so we thought it would be a good thing to do.

We were very excited to find out we had been shortlisted to receive an award. We attended the Awards Ceremony which was excellently organised and were absolutely thrilled when we won our category, ‘Service Excellence’. There were a lot of important local business people in attendance. It was particularly gratifying when our name was read out as the winner and there were lots of cheers from around the room from people who knew us (some clients, some not).

Participating in this is a no-brainer for any local business!”

Nick Brandon - Sales Director First Office Supplies

“We entered the Times of Tunbridge Wells Business Awards last year, and we’re delighted that we did… we were fortunate enough to win Creative Business of the Year, which was a huge reward to the team for all the hard work we do, and helped underpin our credentials when talking to clients. Since the awards, we have had some great coverage as a result, leading to new clients and generally a real feel good factor within our team and any local networking event we attend. To top it all off, the Times of Tunbridge Wells put on a fantastic awards ceremony, and we had a great evening celebrating!

We’re looking forward to entering the awards again in 2017!!”

Larry Hardcastle - Managing Director Larrytech

"Being the first year, we didn't know quite what to expect, but it was a fantastic evening and made even better for winning Young business Person of the year. Looking forward to the 2017 awards already."

Jenny Kitchen - Managing Director Yoyo Design

"I was honoured to be asked to be a judge at the Business Awards. It is a wonderful opportunity to recognise the multitude of talented businesses and business people in the area, both established and upcoming."
