Help to celebrate the ‘Best of Cirencester'

Cirencester Chamber of Commerce has highlighted an opportunity to develop the Business Awards, so that it becomes an annual celebration of the ‘Best of Cirencester.’

The Cirencester Business & Community Awards main purpose is to bridge the gap between the business community and the people who live and interact within the town. By creating an awards event that brings together both groups this would help to develop Cirencester as a better place for all to live and work in.

Held in the Parish Church, between 6pm – 9.30pm on 22 July with a maximum of 300 attendees from both the towns residential and business communities, it will celebrate what makes the town and its people so special. With 6 awards for business and 4 for the community, we hope to recognise and reward those who really make a difference. Cirencester Town Council will co-ordinate the community awards.

By using the parish church and marketplace as the centre point for the event it will really be in the heart of the town celebrating the community we all live and work in.

Building on our 10-year experience of running successful business awards in the town, we are confident that we will deliver an awards evening that will provide recognition for both our residential and business communities, bringing them together.
