Valley at Work is proud to organise the Rossendale Business Awards – a yearly showcase of the achievements, quality and diversity of the local businesses and people that make Rossendale such a great area.

Nominations will open Wednesday 20th September and will close Friday 20th October, giving everyone plenty of time and opportunity for businesses to be proposed. Applications for awards need to be submitted no later than Wednesday 27th October, with the finalists being announced Wednesday 8th November.

The awards ceremony will take place at The Ashcroft in Whitworth on the evening of Saturday 9th December. It’s going to be a fantastic occasion, we cannot wait to see everyone there, meeting friends in business old and new.

Last year we received 189 nominations for 120 businesses and 31 enterprising people, we are looking to surpass that this year!

Now more than ever it is important that we actively demonstrate our support for each other and the businesses of Rossendale. We have a wealth of talent and great entrepreneurship in this area and the R-Awards are here to celebrate exactly that.
