VIDEO: Eastbourne Business Awards 2015

The 2015 Eastbourne Business Awards banquet luncheon was yet again another glittering affair last Friday at the Grand Hotel with over 300 in attendance. The event host this year was Danny Pike of BBC Sussex. These awards showcase the very best businesses in the town and surrounding areas and this years’s awards did just that.

The big winner this year was Brewers who took home the Overall Business of the Year Award and Large Business of the Year Award. We were lucky enough to win Large Business of the Year and the Best Overall Business of the Year, which was absolutely thrilling,” said Nick Brewer. “We did not see it coming at all. It’s so nice to be here today, with so many friends, business colleagues, and in Eastbourne which is such a lovely town to work in.”



The lifetime Achievement Award went to Sue Mulvey of the BMI Esperance Hospital and the Business Person of the Year awards went to Trevor Algar of Cliffe Enterprise Ltd.

MP Carline Ansell attended the event and said, “It’s a really nice way to have a bit of fun but also to pat on the back businesses that have really gone that extra mile over the last 12 months.”

Colin Slaughter the Chairman of Eastbourne, Lewes and Wealden Branch of the Federation of Small Businesses who were this year’s headline sponsors said, “It was a super event and great to see so many of Eastbourne and District’s businesses receive such worthy awards for all their hard work and great efforts over the past twelve months. The food was excellent too well done to the team at the Grand Hotel.”
