Otley Business Award Sponsors for 2018
Otley Business Awards Celebrates
for the 4th Year
& Announces New Award for 2019!
The Otley Business Awards took place last Friday, 23rd March at the Otley
Courthouse amid rapturous applause.
The event, formed by Otley Chamber of Trade, was a hive of excitement with over 100 nominees, mainly small independent business owners, flocking to see who had won the prestigious awards. Organiser Tom Hatley from Christopher Little & Co said "A fantastic 69 businesses, across all sectors, have been nominated by their customers this year which just goes to show what an outstanding and diverse range of businesses we have here in Otley."
The evening began with a delicious Indian buffet by Jewel of India followed by Guest Speaker Jason Richards, owner of Yorkshire Trike Tours and Winner of Yorkshire Businessman of the Year 2017. Jason talked about all the obstacles he had to negotiate in order to set up his unique business back in 2012. The idea behind the Yorkshire Trike Tours was born after watching a TV series featuring Billy Connolly cruising Route66 across America on a Boom Mustang trike. It wasn't all plain sailing at the start but through ambition and determination Jason & his wife Judith now enjoy their lifelong passion of giving chauffeur driven tours around the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
The Awards Ceremony followed with the following businesses walking away with their own engraved awards and personalised certificates:
