Celebrating Gloucestershire's Women in Business

30 March 2012 at 12:14

Wow, what an event!

Last night The Centaur at Cheltenham Racecourse served as the venue for the annual Gloucestershire Citizen & Gloucestershire Echo Women in Business Awards.

Margaret Young and Cara Forrest from Leigh Young Solicitors, Stroud.We were there. Hobnobbing with the county's glamorous businesswomen and were so pleased to see our home town of Stroud so well presented with Cheryl Leigh of Leigh Young Solicitors and Catherine Green of WSP Solicitors as finalists in the Rising Star of the Year and Woman of the Year categories. Unfortunately they were both pipped to the post, but we're sure you'll see their names on other awards shortlists this year!

Sarah Pullen, MD of Gloucestershire Media, was host and, as ever, her speech roused laughter and got the night off to a good start.

We'd like to say a special well done to Olivia from Tewkesbury-based engineering business Green Car Depollution. Olivia won 'Rising Star of the Year' and 'New Business of the Year'. We've got a feeling this young lady is really going places - look out world!

Were you there? If so, let us know what your highlights were...What did you think of the venue, the food, the finalists and winners...? Send us your photos and we'll add them to this post!

BIG respect to Gloucestershire Women in Business. We salute you.
