Nearly 50 representatives from local firms attended the Exmouth Chamber of Commerce Business Awards ‘nominees’ breakfast’ at Ocean on Tuesday.

Those shortlisted for accolades were given an opportunity to meet each other.

The chairman of Exmouth Chamber of Commerce, Ian MacQueen, presented cheques of £200 each to local charities Pete’s Dragons and Exmouth Coastwatch. The cash came from the proceeds of last year’s event.

This year’s Exmouth Business Awards, sponsored by the Journal, will be held at Ocean on Friday, May 19, and will be the fifth consecutive ceremony for the town and district.

Mr MacQueen said: “This year we have had even more entrants across the 13 categories that made the judges’ decisions very difficult. Those businesses which have been shortlisted should be immensely proud that they have been successful in reaching the finals and I would like to wish all of them the very best of luck on the night.”

Tuesday’s breakfast event saw Vic Williams, CEO of Exeter-based The Audacious Company, gave a presentation on business growth.

Tickets for the awards are selling fast and can be purchased from the Exmouth Chamber of Commerce website or Exmouth Pavilion.
