2014 has seen some fantastic business stories drop on to my desk. There have been numerous business start-ups, contract successes and promotions as West Suffolk’s business leaders have ridden out one of the worst recessions in my lifetime.
None of these could have been achieved without the dedication and sheer hard work of owners, staff and those behind the scenes.
And it’s these groups of people who we will be honouring at the Bury Free Press Business Awards on October 10, the culmination of the Business Festival (see pages 21-24).
Business across West Suffolk enjoys terrific support from many angles and the right conditions exist for many diverse industries and business sectors to survive and really thrive.
So as we prepare to celebrate the best in business locally, everyone involved in business across this little part of Suffolk can bask for a second in the glow of a job well done and look forward to continued success in the marketplace.
You’ve worked for it you deserve it!
