It is an enormous privilege to play a part in recognising and celebrating the outstanding achievements of companies, big and small, from across the county. With businesses having to work even harder to succeed in the current economic climate, the Awards are a great way to reward and raise a glass to all those who contribute to the prosperity of Somerset.”
