We are delighted to be sponsoring such a prestigious event that recognises the achievements of businesses throughout the Test Valley region.  We would urge any local businesses to consider entering – the coverage received is remarkable and having been fortunate enough to have Alana Penkethman nominated for an award last year we have been able to see this first hand.

We are committed to our own growth in this current period of economic insecurity and we are very much looking forward to hearing from other businesses and individuals that are in the same position.  Our membership of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Programme and being accredited to the UK200 Group supports this commitment.

During the entry period, several entrants will be selected at random to receive an array of fabulous entry prizes; including wine and other sought-after local goodies.


The Awards is free to enter; taking just a few short minutes to fill in the online form which, if successfully chosen as a winner, could lead to a full 12 months of business promotion across the Test Valley.


Businesses are encouraged to enter as many categories as possible before the entry period ends at midnight on 13th May.


Now in its 15th year, the Test Valley Business Awards – run by a steering group of volunteers – has become a well-established platform to champion business excellence. It is a great way of shining a light particularly on the many new and small businesses in the region, all doing interesting and valuable work, but often out of sight.
