Winners of Grantham Journal Business Awards 2021 revealed at glittering awards ceremony





The winners of the Grantham Journal Business Awards 2021 have been announced at a glittering awards ceremony this evening.

After months of anticipation, the finalists, main partners, category and associate sponsors, judges and guests gathered at UK Arena, Allington, to celebrate all that is great about business in the Grantham area.

This evening's event was hosted by BBC Radio Lincolnshire presenter Melvyn Prior. The winners in 11 categories each took home beautiful trophies made by Grantham-based company Viking Signs.

Addressing the audience before the awards were presented, Iliffe Media's chief revenue officer Ricky Allan said: "After a somewhat challenging 18 months, it's fair to say that there has never been a more important time to recognise those that play such a leading role in our local economy.

"Tonight is all about celebrating the best of business in our community and celebrating the achievements of some of the incredible businesses in and around Grantham.

"Those achievements mean more this year than they ever have before. The past 18 months have been unimaginably difficult. Every person, business and organisation has been affected by the pandemic.

"But the fact we are all here tonight is testament to your resilience, innovation and hard work. In the worst of times, you didn’t just survive, you thrived. For that you should be incredibly proud so please give yourselves a huge round of applause."

During the ceremony itself, videos produced by Leo Media, were shown throughout the presentation giving guests a flavour of each business or individual and why they deserved to be finalists.
