There was glitz, glamour and an ‘eclectic and electric’ atmosphere as the winners were revealed in the 2018 Exmouth Business Awards at Ocean on Friday night.

This year’s awards were so successful that the ceremony sold out within a week of tickets going on sale. There was also a record number of entries.

A dozen businesses were delighted to collect accolades, along with Carla Hiley, who received the Judges’ Special Award for her work with Exmouth Festival.

The awards are organised in partnership between Exmouth Chamber of Commerce and the Exmouth Journal.

Chamber chairman Ian MacQueen hailed the ‘vibrant, eclectic and electric’ atmosphere on the night and said: “It went very well. The awards are now firmly on the business calendar every year. Their health is excellent, ever-increasing and we’re maybe looking to expand the categories.”

Mr MacQueen thanked East Devon MP Sir Hugo Swire, who presented the awards, for his ‘erudite and always entertaining’ contribution to the night.

Mr MacQueen said of the Judges’ Special Award winner: “Carla is responsible for organising Exmouth Festival and has raised its profile considerably.

“It is the biggest free festival in the UK.

“She has over the years achieved that, and has done a fantastic job putting Exmouth on the map in terms of events that go on in the town.”
