TIME is running out to enter this year’s Test Valley Business Awards.

There are only three days left to enter the 15th award show as entries close at midnight on Monday, 13 May, as the final entry prize has been presented with her reward.

Chosen at random from all entrants of this year’s Awards, Kate Griffin of Wessex Spirits in Andover last week received her prize for entering early - a mini hamper, donated by Hampshire Fare, who are based in Rownhams in southern Test Valley.

The hamper was presented to Kate by Nancy Judge of Hampshire Fare who said: “Hampshire Fare is delighted to support the Test Valley Business Awards which do such a fantastic job of highlighting and celebrating the region’s businesses. We strongly recommend that - just as Kate has done - eligible businesses get their entries in before the May 13 deadline.”

This year, businesses are being encouraged to enter any or all of the Awards 6 categories,

sponsored by some of the area’s most accomplished and well-established businesses.

The awards categories are: Innovation and Technology award, New Business of the Year award, Marketing Excellence award, Employer of the Year award, Businesswoman of the Year award and Small Business of the Year award.

It is the first year of the Small Business of the Year award, made possible by award Gold Sponsor Parker Bullen LLP.

The awards are open to all businesses operating in Test Valley that employ 15 people or fewer, the award looks to celebrate the achievements, the overcoming of challenges, and skills of small businesses in the area.

The awards are free to enter, and could lead to winners gaining a full year of business promotion across Test Valley, including editorial and advertising opportunities worth more than £1,000.

To enter, go to: tvbawards.org.uk/enter and fill in the online form with 200-250 words about the business in the relevant category.
