We're absolutely delighted to announce the winners and highly commended businesses in our first, annual Cheltenham BID Awards
When we launched the awards, we set out to recognise the broad spread of companies thriving in the BID zone - Cheltenham’s Business Improvement District.
The BID board has done a tremendous amount to raise the profile of this bustling town centre, from securing funding for major infrastructure projects to initiating important tourist-focused initiatives designed to draw yet more visitors to its shopping and leisure destinations.
And we were inundated with nominations for brilliant businesses spanning an area from The Promenade and Montpellier to the High Street and beyond.
From pubs and restaurants to beauty salons, professional services organisations to retail workers, we’ve been bowled over by the fantastic things you’re doing to promote Cheltenham, and Gloucestershire as a whole.
The nominations are in. The judges have made their decisions.
And now we’re absolutely thrilled to be able to showcase and celebrate your significant successes.
Congratulations, all. Your awards are very well deserved.
