It’s Time To Shine in LS29!


The launch of the Ilkley Business Awards 2020 is to be held at The Craiglands Hotel on Wednesday 11th September from 5.45pm to 7.30pm. The event is free to attend and open to anyone with a business in LS29 who would like to find out about entering.


After a welcome drink and canapes, attendees will hear from last year’s Overall Winner Virtual College before having the opportunity to chat to the organisers about the entry process. Entries open immediately after the launch and close on 17th January 2020 with the winners announced at a sparkling black-tie event on Friday 6th March.


Attendees are asked to register via Eventbrite.


The Awards are run by a small committee and backed by the Ilkley Business Forum. This year’s team is made up of Julia Forrester from TaxAssist Accountants, Brooke Adams from Denton Hall, Kelly Edmundson from LCF Law, Cay Schofield from RDC Solicitors, Victoria Holland from Ison Harrison Solicitors and Helen Rhodes, Ilkley BID Manager.


Cay commented “I’m really excited to be involved in organising the Ilkley Business Awards this year. I’ve attended as a guest for the last two years and have really enjoyed it. It’s obvious that a lot of work goes on behind the scenes and I’m loving being part of the team.”


Victoria added “the other ladies have all been involved in previous years and it’s clear they have a lot of fun as well as making sure the Awards are run in a professional and transparent manner. The mix of their experience plus some fresh ideas from new committee members seems to be a real recipe for success.”


The launch date also sees the unveiling of a new, more user-friendly website which will make the entry process easier.
