“It’s that time of the year again when we look to find all that is best and wonderful about Fenland enterprise,” says Cambs Times editor John Elworthy.

“We are delighted to again be launching our search for top performing companies and individuals through our Fenland Enterprise Business Awards.

“We have of course taken note of comments and input from those who attended and took part in previous years and the 2019 awards are on target to perform equally if not better than any we have staged.

“But it all depends, on ever, on your our readers and supporters so today I urge you to look through the categories, evaluate where you think you can enter (you can enter as many categories as you like) and get the work of preparation under way.

“It is totally free to enter and a gala dinner in the autumn will, as always, be the culmination of these spectacular awards.

“If you are unsure of categories or hesitant about applying, then please do get in touch and we will put you in the right direction towards a successful entrant (what happens thereafter of course is in the hands of our very experienced and dedicated panel of judges).
