Thursday 24th January will see the return of the annual South West Business and Community Awards ceremony, which will celebrate the region’s most ambitious, inspirational and exciting businesses, charities and individuals.

The stars of the ceremony will undoubtedly be the Awards winners and C&D Group Ltd are proud to sponsor the SME of the Year Award.

We are pleased to hear that this year the standard of entrants is very high and know the judges have their work cut out to select the shortlist nominees and winners.  These are some comments from them:-

James Phipps, Chairman of Excalibur is again part of the judging panel and said: “Judging this year’s awards will be tough. Every entry is of a very high standard and each one is unique which makes the decision harder. I’m very proud of the quality of businesses that we have in this region and these awards give them the true recognition that they deserve.”

Alec Jones-hall, Director of South West Business and Community Award’s said “We are proud and excited to be celebrating outstanding achievement across the region and rewarding those who are making a huge impact throughout the South West. It is also a time for the business community to come together, not only to celebrate the accomplishments of those shortlisted and the deserving winners of each category, but also to mark the fact that we all continue to play a vital role in the success of our region and that its future achievements will be built on the foundations we lay today.”

Nominees will gather in The Double Tree Hilton, at Swindon, on Thursday January 24th  to hear the winners in 13 categories – and one being hailed Outstanding Business of the Year.


Locally based UK’s top 10 business advisor and entrepreneur’s Godmother Alison Edgar is the host.  Alison is mentor to some of the UK’s biggest entrepreneur’s (she has some very famous clients). Alison is regularly featured in The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, The Mail on Sunday and the Guardian.


Celebrity keynote speaker Monty Halls will deliver the inspiration and motivation on the night through their keynote speech. 

South West based TV Celebrity Monty Halls will be inspiring the nominees by delivering a highly motivational keynote at the awards gala. Monty has been featured on BBC, ITV, Channel 4 & 5, History & Discovery Channel. Monty is a former Royal Marine Officer who has worked with Nelson Mandela and travelled the world.


Tiny Tina Turner and her six-piece band will provide the entertainment. She has worked on some big shows, and with some of the biggest names. Tiny Tina Turner is one of
Europe's best Tina Turner impersonators.

We look forward to meeting all the nominees and supporters of this event and presenting the Award to the winner of the SME of the Year category.  Come and speak to Karen, Kath, Ursula, Chris and the rest of the team on the night – we look forward to hearing some great news stories.
