businessawardLOCAL businesses and business people were honoured this week (July 9) at the Radio Pembrokeshire Business Awards supported by the Port of Milford Haven.

The awards ceremony was held at the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven and hosted by The Call Centre’s Managing Director Nev Wilshire and Radio Pembrokeshire’s daytime presenter Jay Curtis.

Fifteen local businesses came away with awards, including Fenton Vets who scooped the Innovation Award as well as the overall Gold Award.

The awards, now in their second year honour the businesses and business people who play a vital role in creating growth and prosperity in Pembrokeshire.

Radio Pembrokeshire’s Managing Director, Martin Mumford said “I’d like to thank everyone involved in re-establishing a Business Awards event in the county:  the businesses who took the time to nominate, the finalists and winners, the public who voted in their thousands and the sponsors who make such an event possible.”
