BIG WAVERLEY AWARDS 2018

Winners announced

The Winners are announced for the Waverley BIG Awards at Gala Ceremony!

Waverley businesses gathered on Friday 19th October for a glittering Business, Innovation and Growth Awards Ceremony at the Lythe Hill Hotel, Haslemere. The evening was compered by international speaker and local businessman Philip Calvert. Over 180 sponsors, finalists and guests watched a series of short videos of each of the 24 finalists, as they ate a delicious three course meal.  With bated breath, each category winner was announced and awarded a fabulous crystal trophy, champagne and certificate.  Finalists also felt like winners as they accepted their own trophies, recognising their achievements.

This inaugural year of the Waverley BIG awards proved extremely popular attracting the finest calibre of entrants across all sectors, sizes and stages of business development.  The judges made up of sponsors and peers from within the business community had a difficult task.

The four Chamber Presidents Awards sponsored by Haslemere and Farnham Town Councils and Surrey County Council were won by xmas tree grower Hans Christmas Andersen for Cranleigh; Branston Adams accountants for Farnham; retailer Dylan’s Ice Cream for Haslemere; and digital marketing consultancy Innovation Visual for Godalming.  Branston Adams achieved the double with a second win for Community Partnership sponsored by Waverley Borough Council.

Waverley Borough Council’s leader, Julia Potts said ‘I am really delighted that Branston Adams have won this first BIG Community Partnership award.  They are a fantastic example of a local business that really does work within the community and give so much back to residents in so many ways. Reading through their submission I found it all quite inspirational and wish them a really successful year and hope their achievement goes on to inspire many more businesses to enter this competition next year.’

The Customer Delight Award sponsored by Downs Solicitors was won by Wedition, a unique personalised wedding magazine designed for the couple and their guests.   Edwards Greene Accountants sponsored the Innovation Award and the winner was Download Learning, an original digital learning tool.  The eighth award for Staff Engagement, Education and Empowerment, sponsored by Dunsfold Park was won by Carbon Six Digital, a software development agency.

This was the first project led by the newly formed coalition of the four Chambers of Commerce in Cranleigh, Farnham, Godalming and Haslemere. Their shared aim is to encourage businesses to locate here, to retain local companies and help them grow, to promote Waverley as a ‘the’ place to do business south of London and to market the many skilled employment opportunities on residents’ doorsteps.

The Waverley BIG Awards 2018 are also generously sponsored by Blink, Taybridge Consulting, SI Capital, Cornmeter, Blue Dot Display, PAAC IT, Marley Flowers, The Remarkable Studio, Johnson Fellowes, and Lythe Hill Hotel.
