“The Test Valley Business Awards celebrate business excellence – and that “pride of local” ethos is something that we share at Barratt and David Wilson Homes. The Southampton division has strong ties to the Test Valley. Over the last 50 years we have helped develop and support a number of community organisations and charities in the area. As well as homes, we believe in building communities – so the Business in the Community Award is a great fit for us and we are very happy to be sponsoring this category.
Not only do these awards give a platform for those organisations that have gone the extra mile in their specific field, we also wanted to be a part of the recognition for businesses that have weathered the storm of Covid-19, showing true resilience and entrepreneurship, while maintaining care of their staff and community in which they work. Many have been through a tough time – and the awards themselves were put on hold to keep everyone safe. I think I speak for all of us when I say we are pleased to see the return of the Test Valley Business Awards in 2021 and we are looking forward to be involved in this initiative as we welcome everyone back to normal once again!”
