With well over 100 entries to this year’s Test Valley Business Awards – surpassing last year’s numbers – the eleventh year is shaping up to be a very promising celebration of local business excellence.
This year, the Test Valley Business Awards teamed up with local businessman Patrick Vaughan-Fowler, owner of the newly refurbished George & Dragon, Hurstbourne Tarrant, to offer all those “early birds”, who entered by 30th November, a chance to win 3 course meal for 2 with a bottle of wine at this beautiful coaching inn.
The Awards steering committee is very pleased to announce that the winner of this fantastic prize is:
Lulu’s is an independent boutique in the heart of Andover, stocking an array of womenswear and accessories from a variety of brands to suit all budgets and lifestyles.
Louise Ellison, owner of Lulu’s Boutique, said of winning the Early Entry Prize “I never usually win anything, so I am really pleased to have won the early entry prize dinner for two at The George & Dragon.”
“I’ve heard great things about their food since it reopened, and have been planning to go for a while, just haven’t had the time, so I’m looking forward to going.”
“It was a lovely surprise to hear that someone had nominated me for a Test Valley Business Award. I’ve worked so hard over the last year to get my business of the ground, it’s so nice to be given this recognition… I’m really proud of my shop, and excited about what the future holds!”
The TVBA steering committee is very grateful to Mr Vaughan-Fowler’s generous spirit for offering such a lovely prize and have very much enjoyed the partnership forged between TVBA and the George & Dragon.
