Each winner received a specially commissioned award, with Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust Chief Executive Sir Andrew Morris accepting the Outstanding Achievement Award on behalf of Frimley Park Hospital.

Leader of Surrey Heath Borough Council, Cllr Moira Gibson said: “This event is key in recognising the borough’s best businesses, but also in encouraging and supporting local firms who contribute so much to the Surrey Heath economy. With such a wide range of businesses entering the various categories, we were delighted by the quality of the submissions, which made the judging process all the more difficult. This successful event is enjoyed and appreciated by the many firms who attend, and of course our congratulations go to all the winners!”
