New Forest Brilliance in Business Awards 2016/17

Members of the public are being asked to nominate their favourite businesses in this year's New Forest Brilliance in Business Awards. The awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of businesses across a range of categories including customer care, training and development and sustainability. One business selected from the winners of the individual categories will be named NFBP Business of the Year.

Winning businesses will receive a locally crafted wooden plaque, membership of New Forest Business Partnership for one year and widespread publicity in recognition of their successes.
