Congratulations to all the winners of the Arun Business of the Year Awards 2017.

The Award Ceremony was a fantastic event and really celebrated the very best businesses in Arun District.

Arun Business Partnership

The Awards are the culmination of a busy year for Arun Business Partnership.

We’ve welcomed many new businesses and provided dozens of local businesses with advice, support and access to funding.

Most importantly, we’ve introduced local businesses to each other and seen them develop strong working relationships. This has led to new business deals and kept vital funds in the local economy.

Arun Business Partnership Special Award

Susan Beeby from The HR Dept

“During the year I get to meet a vast number of businesses and they’re all amazing.  Every now and then we meet a business or person who does just that bit more and we want to recognise their effort.  Sometimes they won’t fit within one of our existing categories so we’ve decided to have a special award to recognise special effort or excellence within the business community”
