2016 Adur and Worthing Business Awards

2016 Adur & Worthing Business Awards

The 2016 Adur & Worthing Business Awards celebrated local business success, at a sparkling black tie event in Worthing Pavilion on Friday 11th November 2016. The Mayor of Worthing, Cllr. Sean McDonald, and Chairman of Adur, Cllr. Ann Bridges, welcomed more than 300 local business leaders to this year's spectacular awards ceremony.

Nick Wallis' witty acronym banter kept laughs flowing throughout the proceedings, as local businesses were presented with the twenty annual accolades. This year's 'Business Personality of the Year' was awarded to a very deserving Dave Hunt, or 'Mr Worthing' as he is often referred to, and the 'Lifetime Achievement' was awarded to Peter Davies, for his career long contribution to the local economy.

Cllr. Bryan Turner and Cllr. Brian Boggis, Executive Members for Regeneration at Adur & Worthing Councils, presented the 'Start-up Business Award' to 'Bespoke You Beauty Retreat' who are based in Broadwater, Worthing. Cllr. Bryan Turner said:

“The Councils are proud sponsors of the Start-up Business category and it's great to such see so many wonderful new businesses starting up in Adur and Worthing.”
