On Tuesday, 20th May 2015, the winners of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council Chairman’s Award 2015 were announced at a very special ceremony held at the Spa Bridlington and our area did extremely well. The annual awards celebrate the contributions made by individuals and organisations to make the East Riding a better place over the last year. People, businesses, community projects, and building schemes were all honoured for their achievements in five different categories. The 24 finalists were all nominated by the public and were all invited to attend the annual ceremony, where the winners were presented with their awards in front of an audience of dignitaries and invited guests. The awards were hosted by BBC Look North presenter and news reader Claire Frisby.

Councillor Pat O’Neil, Chairman of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: ” The winners, and indeed all the finalists, show the East Riding at its very best. They are shining examples of what can be achieved in our area and I’m delighted we can reward each one for their hard work, dedication and talent.” We were delighted to be the winners this year of the Chairman’s Business Awards for 51 employees and over.
