Hyndburn Business Awards

Enterprising People is very proud to organise Hyndburn Business Awards. We do it on a not for profit basis, with a lot of help and support from the local business community. Hyndburn Business Awards is a showcase for the achievements, quality and diversity of the local businesses and enterprising people who make Hyndburn such a great place to live, work and visit.

Hyndburn Business Awards 2020

Like much of our business community, Hyndburn Business Awards has now felt the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, as the local lockdown has been strengthened there is no prospect of a September ceremony and little prospect of one in October either. However, on Tuesday November 17th there will be a Hyndburn Business Awards ceremony, either at Accrington Town Hall (still our preferred option) or virtual on Zoom or Teams.

Nominations have now closed. We have received over 500 nominations for more than 100 businesses. You can find the latest full list of nominees by clicking here. The entry deadline has also passed, and we’d like to thank everyone who took the time and trouble to enter. The judging panel has pored over some incredibly good entries,with stories of hope, creativity and success in the face of these unprecedented events, and we have now announced this year’s finalists, which you can find here.

Hyndburn Business Awards 2017

A huge vote of thanks to all our sponsors, but most especially thank you to everyone that took the time and trouble to nominate in record numbers for the Awards in 2017. We received a bumper crop of high quality entries, which made the job of the judging panel extremely challenging. You can find the list of HAwards17 finalists here. The winners were announced at the ceremony, which was held in the ballroom at Accrington Town Hall on the evening of June 13th 2017. It was a full house again, and was a magnificent celebration of local business and enterprise. The full list of winners, along with photographs from the ceremony, can be found here.
