Last night’s Grantham Journal Business Awards was a spectacular event which showcased the very best of business in the town.

The atmosphere was one of excitement and, as host for the evening Melvyn Prior said, one of “pride”. This was echoed by the many award sponsors and award winners, many of whom took to the podium to give their thanks.

Following welcome addresses by Journal editor Paul Richardson and chairman of Grantham Business Club Stuart Pigram, and a four-course dinner, the awards ceremony began.

We can now announce the winners of the 2015 Grantham Journal Business Awards.
