The Perfect Year

Keighley and Airedale Business Award nominees announced

The shortlisted entries for this year's Keighley and Airedale Business Awards have been revealed ahead of the awards ceremony later this month.

The 8th annual event takes place on Friday 30th September at Victoria Hall in Keighley. The awards began back in 2013, although they didn't run in 2020 or 2021 because of the pandemic so this is the first time local businesses have had the chance to win since 2019.

The Keighley Business Awards were previously hosted each year by Harry Gration, but following his sad death in June the role is being taken over for 2022 by Harry's Keighley-born BBC Look North colleague Paul Hudson.

A spokesperson for the awards said: "Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter. We were delighted to receive a high number of quality applications for each category. Please do not be disappointed if you were not successful this time - we encourage you to enter again next year."
