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.”

The awards will take place at the borough’s biggest business hub - CEME Conference Centre in Rainham, on Thursday 8 February 2018, where Havering Business of the Year will be announced.

The awards ceremony is attended by business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians, media representatives and more. To attend the prestigious awards ceremony visit www.haveringbusinessawards.co.uk/tickets. Tickets cost £70 and include a three course dinner with pre-dinner drinks and wine with the meal.

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.”
