Havering Business Awards 2017 finalists

Steve Moore, Director of Neighbourhoods at Havering Council was part of the judging panel and said: “Judging this year’s awards was tough. Every entry was of a very high standard and each one was unique which made the decision harder. I’m very proud of the quality of businesses that we have in this borough and these awards give them the true recognition that they deserve.”

Lorna Waters, Station Manager at Time 107.5 FM, said: “We had so many worthy contenders which made this year’s judging process very difficult. There were lots of new businesses entering so it was really inspiring to see how well people in the borough are doing.”
