THE INSPIRE North Hampshire Business awards judging panel has decided on its three finalists for each category, with these and the winners to be announced at a gala dinner on 15 November.

The finalists come from across the north Hampshire region, from Andover in the west to Farnborough in the east and includes Basingstoke, Fleet, Hook and everywhere between.

With an unprecedented amount of entries the judges have had to make tough decisions when selecting the final three for each category.

Felicity Edwards, of Destination Basingstoke, which is organising this year’s awards programme, said: “The sheer scale and quality of this year’s entries made for some v e r y t o u g h decisions.

“ W e k n o w there will be some businesses that will be very disappointed not to have been shortlisted, but as the profile of the Awards grows each year, so does the level of competition.

“We are confident that the shortlisted businesses are all very strong candidates and should be proud to be selected as finalists.

“The glittering awards ceremony will be a fantastic and well deserved celebration for the region”.
