REVEALED: Harrogate Advertiser Business Awards winners 2017

The winners of the 2017 Harrogate Advertiser Business Awards were revealed at a glittering ceremony in the Royal Hall on Thursday night.

The cream of North and West Yorkshire’s business talent were in attendance as hundreds gathered for the much-anticipated awards, sponsored by Harrogate and Pateley Bridge estate agent Verity Frearson.

The black-tie event – one of the highlights of the region’s business calendar – was the grand finale of an awards process which started back in December.

Sackfuls of entries were received, scrutinised, judged and reduced to shortlists.

This year, the Lord-Lieutenant of North Yorkshire, Barry Dodd CBE, was the principal guest at the awards, which are sponsored by estate agent Verity Frearson.

Other guests include the Mayor and Mayoress of Harrogate, Coun Nick Brown and his wife Linda.
