You may have seen from our Facebook page and heard on the radio that we’re pretty excited about being a sponsor at the Wessex Fm Local Business Awards. Our chosen category is the New Business Award. so, what made us chose this one? There are literally thousands of businesses making up the Weymouth, Portland and Dorchester business community and each one of these individual organisations deserves to be celebrated, especially in the recent economic times. There have been casualties sadly, but new businesses are born in their place and are ready to thrive. Whatever name they go by; sole traders, one man bands, new startups, each one deserves recognition for making a go of things. It’s a brave and incredibly daunting prospect to set up and run a business. That is why we chose this category. To celebrate peoples passion and tenacity in a confusing and often lonely world. The new business award deserves to be won by someone who puts their heart and soul into their business. They may not be making millions just yet, but they could be making a difference in your life and that’s what needs to be celebrated.
Our interest in supporting Wessex Fm stems from our passion for local business. Situated in one of the busiest business parks in the local area, Southwell Park, Portland we come across many wonderful local businesses. Each uniquely designed to the owners skill, creativity and passion. Compass Point Estates who manage Southwell Park have taken on 12 brand new businesses in the last year. This is a truly wonderful and inspirational thing. It is so important that we support our local economy, that’s why where we can we will shop and spend locally. By doing this we are helping small businesses grow.
