Best businesses announced

The winners of the best business awards have been announced for local companies which provide growth in their communities.

The annual Best of Royal Greenwich Business Awards were presented on Friday by Steph McGovern, host of BBC Breakfast, who handed out the honours at the InterContinental O2 Hotel.

Greenwich is home to more than 11,000 businesses, providing around 95,000 jobs. This year there were an incredible 240 nominations across the 10 categories, which is double the amount received last year.

The final shortlist of 60 included six in each category.

Cllr Danny Thorpe, leader of Greenwich council, said: “Congratulations to all the winners at the Best of Royal Greenwich Business Awards.

I’d also like to thank our sponsors for making it possible, as well as all those who took time to enter the awards, and everyone who attended the ceremony.

“These awards show that Greenwich really is a great place to do business, and as a council we’re doing everything we can to help businesses of all shapes, sizes and varieties to thrive.”

Cllr Denise Hyland, cabinet member for economy, skills and apprenticeships, said: “We would like to bolster these awards by ensuring that we promote businesses, boost networking opportunities and encourage residents to shop local.”
