There is just over a week to go until the inaugural Bury Free Press Business Awards, which will recognise innovation, training, customer care and how business is meeting the challenges posed in today’s market.
All shortlisted candidates are invited to the evening, which will be a black tie event hosted by television celebrity Paul Ross. Judges will be visiting the three shortlisted candidates and a short video will be made about each which will be shown at the awards dinner.
Tickets for the glitzey awards night at The Apex are still available and cost £55 to include a drinks reception and dinner.
