The countdown to the Derbyshire Times Business Excellence Awards 2019 is underway.

Entries are open for this year’s Business Awards, which are now in their 11th year, and take place at Chesterfield’s Casa Hotel on Thursday, November 14.

Group editor, Phil Bramley, said: “Businesses are the lifeblood of our community, they provide the jobs we need so we can do the things we love – raising families, putting down roots and growing communities.

“Our awards are a chance to shine a glowing spotlight on the fantastic work businesses do day in, day out – highlighting their innovation, their dedication and their talent.

“They are a way of honouring the cream of north Derbyshire’s commerce and industry, raising the profile of companies, celebrating achievement and recognising the sheer hard work their staff put in to make them what they are today.

“We really want to make our awards are a true celebration of the brilliant businesses in our community – so please make sure you get involved and put forward your achievements so they get the full recognition they deserve.”
