Ella McManus, 2020 operations manager, said: “Without a doubt, the past 15 months have been tough for many of us.

“What better way to recognise how we have all weathered the storm than with a celebration of all of our great businesses across the Mansfield and Ashfield areas.”

Scott Marsh, co-founder with Paul Pitchford of Mansfield Woodhouse-based Your Home Care, said: “We’re a new company with a lot of ambition and we are already setting the standards for home care in north Nottinghamshire.

"We will be entering, particularly as we think we are a unique business with an approach that no-one can match."

Richard Smith – joint managing director and co-founder R.E.A.L. Education, a previous business award winner – said: “The whole experience was absolutely fantastic for everyone at R.E.A.L. To be credited with the award on our 10-year anniversary made it extra special.”
