The winner of the first Test Valley Business Awards 2019 entry prize has been announced…

With this year’s Test Valley Business Awards in full swing, now is the time to enter outstanding local businesses and celebrate professional achievements; alongside the chance to win an assortment of spot prizes, gifted to entrants chosen at random throughout the entry period, which closes on 13th May.

The first winner of several such prizes was chosen this week by Beth Deacon of Broughton-based brewery Test Brewing, donators of this year’s very first entry prize – a gift pack of Test Brewing’s finest beer.

It is a great way of shining a light particularly on the many new and small businesses in the region, all doing interesting and valuable work, but often out of sight.
