A celebration of the best in business

Business people across Tameside came together last night (Thursday) for this year's annual Pride of Tameside Business Awards.

A glittering gala dinner and awards ceremony took place at Dukinfield Town Hall, hosted by TV and radio presenter Andy Crane. 

In total, there were 23 awards handed out on the night of networking and celebration for the region's leading businesses. 

Among the categories were Apprentice of the Year, Family Business of the Year, New Business of the Year and Small Business of the Year. 

Our very own Quest Media Network are among the businesses celebrating after winning the Medium Business of the Year award. 

Judged by a panel made up of internal and external representatives, the awards celebrate the outstanding work of businesses from different sectors and inspirational individuals from across the borough. 

Look out for more interviews and reaction from the award winners across our platforms in the coming days, as well as more images and videos. 

There will also be a special supplement in next week's Tameside Reporter - out on 31 October.
