We spoke to some of our winners today and this is what they had to say..

Everyone at The Fish Factory is obviously ecstatic!  Everybody has worked hard for the last 10 years and truly believed in quality fresh food and exceptional customer service.  This has kept The Fish Factory one of Worthing's busy and favourite restaurants for 10 years.  In this time we have built up hundreds of thousands of regular customers whom feel like The Fish Factory is coming home.  A big thank you to all our customers for using us for all these years.

JSPC are delighted to  have been highly commended in the category of Medium Business. It is great to have recognition of all the hard work over the years! This is the first time JSPC has been in this category which shows how much we have grown even over the last year! We are incredibly grateful to all of our loyal customers and staff for their support, without them, winning this award would not have been possible. "

Sonia Martin from Labelle told us "I feel very overwelmed to have won the award for Young Business Person of the Year. I was just 22 years old when i achieved my dream of owning my own beauty salon and the business has gone from strength to strength. A lot of people assume because i am young that i must have had it all handed to me on a plate, this has not been the case at all. I feel very honoured that my hard work  has been recongnised and I would like to inspire other young people to start businesses, it takes a lot of determination but is worth it in the end."

Having won many awards over the year, we at Clear Computing were especially thrilled to have been 'Highly Commended' in the new category of 'Education & Training' at the Worthing & Adur Awards. Although our main role is an IT Solutions Provider we feel passionate about educating those who use IT, particularly the young, in how to be safe. Our security audits for businesses, along with our Business Continuity Plans ensure safety and compliancy, and save money with insurance policies. A big thank you to those who voted for Clear Computing.

And last but no means least, Zoe from Euphoric Beauty told us ..It was absolutely amazing to win not just one, but two awards, and such an honour. It’s great for the business to be recognised and to know the public voted for us as the Readers’ Choice is the ultimate compliment, as it means the last 9 years’ hard work has been worthwhile. We’ll make sure Euphoric offers everyone even more great treatments and fabulous products!!
