Mercury Business Awards 2020 winners finally get their trophies
The winners of our Mercury Business Awards for 2020 finally have their hands on their unique trophies.
Each of our 11 winners received a trophy made from slate kindly supplied by Clipsham Stone Cutting Company, and wood supplied by Viking Signs.
And coincidentally, Susie Nottingham who runs Clipsham Stone Cutting Company with husband Martin, was able to see one of the trophies being handed over after she arrived for a takeaway at The March Hare Bakery and Tea Rooms as owner Amy Roberts was being photographed outside!
Due to Covid-19 restrictions many of our sponsors were unable to make the presentations so Mercury editor Kerry Coupe had the honour of delivery the trophies in a covid-secure way.
The winners are:
- Best New Start-Up - Radfield Home Care Stamford
- Best Independent Retailer - Rutland Cycling - sponsored by Oldrids and Downtown
