All the winners of the 2021 New Forest Brilliance in Business Awards, held at Brockenhurst College
MORE than 200 people celebrated the annual New Forest Brilliance in Business Awards, making it the event’s largest ceremony in its 16-year history.
Fourteen businesses won awards at the event, held at Brockenhurst College, with Forest Foodie scooping both New Forest Business of the Year, and the Award for Food and Drink. Forest Foodie was created by Flora Richardson last summer to support local producers.
The A&T-sponsored gong for Outstanding Contribution to the New Forest Visitor Economy was won by Forest Park Hotel, with Bartley Marketing and Hoburne worthy finalists.
Matthew Lawson, chairman of the New Forest Business Partnership, which runs the awards, welcomed businesses, decision-makers and sponsors to celebrate the finalists "who have demonstrated outstanding achievements and help to underpin our New Forest Economy".
“This very special event is all about sharing the success stories of these exceptional businesses and individuals to encourage and inspire the 9,000 businesses in the New Forest," he added.
"We had a record number of entries this year which is testament to the resilience of our New Forest Businesses in these extraordinary times.’’
