WITH little more than 10 days to go until entries close for an annual business awards scheme, the fifth and final entry prize winner has been announced.

Picked at random from a hat, Kate Griffin of Wessex Spirits, in Andover, has been named the lucky winner of a miniature hamper, generously donated by Hampshire Fare as part of the Test Valley Business Awards entry prize scheme.

Kate was chosen by the awards’ fourth entry prize winner, Lisa Armstrong of Active Staff Ltd., whilst Lisa was presented with her own prize - a hand-sewn doorstop, courtesy of Porter’s Emporium.

Lisa said: "I'm so pleased to have won an entry prize during the awards' entry period this year just for entering my business into the running; we're incredibly proud of what we do here at Active Staff and entering the awards is just one way we can showcase that to the local business community."

This year, businesses are being encouraged to enter any or all of the six award categories.

To enter, businesses are asked to go to tvbawards.org.uk/enter and fill in an online form with 200 to 250 words about their business against the relevant category judging criteria, which can also be found on the Awards’ website.

Entries are free and close at midnight on May 13.
