We have blogged before about our work with Newham Chamber of Commerce, due to the fact that we were lucky enough to be shortlisted for an award ourselves and Surinder, our MD, was elected to the executive council. Last year, we even had the honour of rebranding their awards. Attending the ceremony and celebrating all the brilliant businesses in our local area made us proud to be a part of Newham. Here’s how you can get involved this year …
Enter – it’s free, doesn’t take long and you don’t even have to be based in Newham!
