Celebrating New Forest businesses

For 18 years, the New Forest Business Partnership has been running the New Forest Business Awards, reviewing local businesses in the New Forest and celebrating and acknowledging their achievements over the past year. Each year, they nominate 200 businesses and then go on to select 54 finalists to fall within 18 award categories, so we are extremely excited to have achieved this stage of the selection process.

This year’s Awards are sponsored by the Southampton Business School at the University of Southampton, and we look forward to attending the awards ceremony and after party on Thursday, 30th of November at Brockenhurst College with the Celebration Party afterwards at Careys Manor Hotel.
