South Holland District Council says it is proud to have once again played an active role in this year’s South Holland Business Awards.
The annual gala occasion, organised by the Spalding and District Chamber of Commerce, took place at Springfield’s Events Centre on Thursday and was attended by dozens of businesses and their staff from across the district.
The council sponsored the Business Person of the Year award for the second time running, which was won by David Ball, from Neame Lea Nurseries.
The authority also handed out a special Lifetime Achievement Award to Ann Savage, technical director at Bakkavor.
Coun Nick Worth, council portfolio holder for business growth, presented both with their accolades.
He said: “Ann has over 35 years of food industry experience and her influence and impact has stretched beyond that role through her active engagement in industry-wide governance and consultation roles. She has been a role model for women succeeding in a science-based industry at a senior level.
“David Ball is passionate about driving the Neame Lea business forward and over the past two years the business has invested over £10million in new infrastructure and equipment to ensure the Spalding-based facility is one of the finest growing sites in the UK.”
Coun Worth added: “I would like to thank everyone who entered and attended the Business Awards and the Spalding Chamber of Commerce, for once again organising such a wonderful event.”
