The Forest Business Awards are designed to recognise and celebrate the achievements of some of the great businesses we have here in our area. This years awards evening took place on Thursday 11th April at Bells Hotel & Country Club in Coleford. With over 200 local business people attending on the night it was the largest event of its kind in the area. There were 16 categories available to enter and the winners and finalists received a framed certificate and/or a glass trophy on the evening. In addition to bringing together a diverse range of businesses we also raised £4,756 for Harry Childs, a local 7 year old boy who suffers from Cerebral Palsy.
