The finalists were drawn up from many, many entries over several hours of deliberations by our judging panel of Fardad Amirsaeedi, Mansfield Council senior regeneration officer, Coun Matthew Relf, Ashfield Council portfolio holder for regeneration and planning, and Martin Rigley, Discover Ashfield chairman and Lindhurst Engineering chief executive officer.

Coun Relf said: “It has been a challenging time for businesses with the pandemic affecting businesses in many different ways.”

Mr Rigley said: “It’s been a tough time for businesses, but despite the difficulties I’ve been so impressed by how Ashfield businesses have continued to adapt to meet new challenges and that new businesses are being set up.”

A Mansfield Council spokesman said: “We believe anything that celebrates the achievements of our thriving business community also supports our vision over the next decade to encourage an ambitious, vibrant and confident place by focusing on four priorities: growth, aspiration, wellbeing and place.

Coun Matthew Relf, Ashfield Council portfolio holder for regeneration and planning.

“Promoting and supporting entrepreneurship, innovation and inward investment in the district are all key parts of our wider strategy and these awards help showcase achievement and inspire aspiration among local businesses to aim high.”

Andy Abrahams, Mansfield mayor, who joined the judges’ meeting, said: “We are all looking forward to celebrating with local businesses at the awards ceremony.”

The black-tie ceremony – described as the perfect opportunity to raise a glass to success within our community – takes place on Thursday, November 11, at Portland College.
