Traders, business owners, civic leaders and East Devon's MP all attended the glitzy awards ceremony held for the first time at Woodbury Park Golf and Country Club on Friday (May 17).

Guests were treated to the views over the resort's golf course before being called in for three-course dinner ahead of the awards being dished out.

The winners had their name read out by East Devon MP Sir Hugo Swire before receiving their trophy from Chamber of Commerce chairman Ian MacQueen.
