LS29 shines at the Ilkley Business Awards 2022


Celebrating businesses within LS29, the winners of the Ilkley Business Awards 2022 were announced at the awards ceremony which took place at The Craiglands Hotel, Ilkley on Friday 18 March 2022.


The 240 attendees enjoyed an evening of celebration with a total of 14 Awards presented, which included two Special Recognition Awards requested by this year’s independent judges.


Ian White, Chairman of this year’s headline sponsor Ilkley BID told us “Ilkley BID were delighted to support this excellent event again this year and it was fabulous to see so many local businesses recognised for their achievements. It’s a true testament to the tenacity of businesses in the LS29 area that after the turmoil caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, there are so many real success stories.”


Speaking on behalf of the Awards committee Kelly Edmundson, solicitor with LCF Law said “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of this year’s sponsors who have made the 2022 awards possible, with special thanks to our headline sponsor, Ilkley BID.
