SOME familiar names from across Monmouthshire are set to battle it out at an awards ceremony, for which a huge amount of entries were received.
The young entrepreneurs shortlisted for the Monmouthshire Business Awards on October 5 include Morgan Williams of skateboard manufacturers Red Pivot, who has previously featured in the Free Press; Emily Webb, inventor of the Oarsome Potential rowing handle; and Richard Meyrick Guitars.
Food businesses in the running are Carriages Catering, based at The Old Station, Tintern and Fabulous Fish, a Chepstow-based specialist seafood business run by Sarah O’Connor.
Dave Bevan, of Monmouthshire Enterprise, which sponsors the awards alongside Monmouthshire Council and adventa, said the amount of entries was “unprecedented” and judges and their work cut out selecting a shortlist.
The winners are being announced at the Angel Hotel, Abergavenny, on October 5 and they each will pick up £250 and a glass award.
