Headline Sponsors of the 2021 Chad Business Excellence Awards
Ashfield District Council are proud to once again be supporting the Chad Business & Community Excellence Awards and to headline with the Big Thank You Award.
The awards allow local businesses to showcase their work and we are encouraging both well established and new businesses to enter.
Through the £70m of government funding secured through the Towns Fund and Future High Streets Funds we are working with partners to invest in Kirkby and Sutton town centres as well as developing a number of projects to support businesses across the district. This includes improving the educational offer with brand new facilities for construction and civil engineering, as well as the flagship project, the ADMC (Automated Manufacturing and Distribution Centre) which will support businesses across the region to develop automation to increase productivity.
It has been a challenging time for businesses, but over £21million of government business support grants were issued across Ashfield and we have supported businesses as they have reopened providing help and advice around government guidelines.
The Council continues to be committed to offering support to all businesses and as part of this we are supporting greater access to local skills projects and have established a partnership of educational organisations to ensure services meet recruitment & skills needs.
We’ve welcomed a number of new businesses to Ashfield and despite the unprecedented times businesses continue to adapt to meet customer needs.
We encourage all businesses in Ashfield to enter this year’s awards.
