21st September 2018

Keith Barbour, Joint Chief Executive at the Mid & East Lothian Chamber of Commerce, explained: “This year we received an exceptionally high volume of entries for all 9 of our categories, and to a very high standard, which made the final selection process quite challenging for our judges.

“We have an incredibly diverse range of businesses in Midlothian & East Lothian and it was important for us to open up more categories to businesses which otherwise may have not entered. It’s also great to see many returning businesses, and many new organisations names in the running. Special thanks go to all of our award sponsors who continue to help make this annual celebration such a success.”
