Winners of the Cirencester Business Awards 2019

Winners have been revealed in this year's Cirencester Business Awards - staged by the town's chamber of commerce.

It is the ninth year of the event which seeks to champion the very best in business the Cotswold market town has to offer.

And as usual, the showcase event at The Corn Hall in Market Place saw plenty of entries, and did not disappoint.

Winners of the night were as follows...

Adam Vines, director of Lounge Design, said: "Social responsibility for the community we work in shouldn't just be the domain of larger business. Small organisations can make a huge impact on their local environment. Work shouldn't just be about the bottom line.

"Lounge Design's ethic is that the team also needs to enjoy coming in to work and being involved in the business as a whole. We also are passionate about giving back to the community and feel this is a crucial element of our work - we spend a percentage of our time every month delivering charitable work to support worthy causes."
