Bridport Business Awards 2024

On the 7th March, businesses from Bridport and the surrounding areas were welcomed to the Town Hall to celebrate the business excellence in our local community. The aim of these awards isn’t a glitzy evening dinner, it is to recognise and reward the local businesses that have made significant contributions to the local economy and community. Whether newly-established or well-developed, the awards focus on bringing recognition to any of the businesses stepping up to the stage from a range of different sectors.

It has been 5 years since the launch of the Bridport Business Awards, with over 150 entries this year, there was no better way to celebrate than welcoming more guests… and more categories!

Two of our team members were honoured to attend the awards ceremony, representing the Cox family and the whole of WDLH.

West Dorset Leisure Holidays

Family Business Of The Year

We were thrilled to receive the Family Business Award, always a category with some very high entry standards, and we received some great feedback from the judges:

“West Dorset Leisure Holidays has been part of the local landscape for over 50 years, in which time it has expanded and evolved to be an award-winning tourism business.

Run today by the second and third generations, the first generation would no doubt be very proud of the family’s achievements. Working together but playing to their own strengths to keep the business as the forefront of industry standards and customers expectations.”

This award was kindly sponsored by ‘The West Dorset Magazine’. Without all the sponsors these awards wouldn’t take place, so it’s great to see so many local businesses involved.
