Finalists for the Best Small Business award!



March 2013
"Creating the magic for Britain’s family businesses"


Ayegardening are delighted to announce that they have been shortlisted in the ‘Best Small Business’ category at the fourth annual Red Ribbon Awards for family business.


Hosted by Family Business Place, they are the UK’s ONLY national awards to recognise the
achievements of family-run companies of all sizes and across all sectors.
The winners will be announced on 5th July 2013 at the 2013 Red Ribbon Awards Ceremony –one of the most prestigious events in the family business calendar. Hosted at the Lancaster London Hotel, the awards ceremony brings together some of the UK’s most loved family business names as well as small, undiscovered gems and the most respected family
business advisers.
Finalists and their guests will be treated to a wonderful 3-course meal, live entertainment
from surprise guests and, of course, the awards presentation itself. There will also be a
Charity Auction to raise money for Help for Heroes (supporting wounded servicemen and
women) and Fields of Life (providing water, education and healthcare to families in East
Africa).


Anita Brightley-Hodges, Managing Director of Family Business Place says,
“We were spoilt for choice with this year’s nominations. From the hundreds who entered, we believe we’ve shortlisted six family businesses who all truly deserve to win. It’s no secret that family-run businesses are the backbone of the UK economy. In times of uncertainty they are the last ones to make redundancies, keep a long-term view for the business and stay true to their founding values of integrity, trust and loyalty.


At Family Business Place we are honoured to present the Red Ribbon Awards to some of
the best the sector has to offer and look forward to announcing the winners in London on
5th July.”
