James Dawes of Dawes Highway Safety Ltd., 2016 winner of the New Business of the Year Award, commented upon winning:

“It wasn't only a great honour to be awarded the 'New Business of the Year Award', it was also a hugely welcome confidence boost for everyone involved in our new company. Start-up business can be a lonely place and to have received recognition at this high level has helped reassure us that we are on the right path to success.”

The launch of the Test Valley Business Awards 2017 will take place on 10th March at The White Horse, Romsey, between 12 & 2pm. Places are free but must be booked in advance. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to come along.

Now in its 13th year, the Test Valley Business Awards – run by a steering group of business volunteers, supported by the Council – has become a well-established platform to promote businesses excellence and especially to shine a light on the many new and small innovative businesses operating out of sight. It is a great way to enable smaller enterprises to gain the recognition and exposure to grow.
