We are still in shock. We are finalist in this year's Mercury Business Awards and on the evening of the 21st September 2018 we won Best New Start Up.
We found out that we'd been nominated as finalists for the awards back in July. We had been chosen from 179 entries.
This was the 13th Mercury Business Awards. The awards are the biggest of their kind recognising the very best businesses across Stamford, Rutland, Bourne and the Deepings.
Unfortunately only Mark could make the event as I was away in Cologne exhibiting Baby Nails® at a Trade Show.
Best New Start Up was the first award of the evening. I don't think Mark could believe it when we were announced as the winners of the category. I'm so sad I wasn't there to collect it with him. Mark collected the award and credited me for our innovative idea.
Thank you to the Mercury Business awards and to our sponsors Hegarty Solicitors for a fantastic evening.
Now to find pride of place for our wonderful award!
