“We were thrilled to win the Best Small Independent Business award initially, so to also win the Best Overall Business it was just the icing on the cake really and we are naturally delighted! Hopefully with the added exposure that this will give us we aim to increase our Business, reaching out to new customers, whilst still maintaining the excellent service and reputation that has seen Ladysafe and Sons progress so much over the years.

I would like to thank all our drivers, escorts and customers that have taken us so far in such a short time. This is fantastic recognition for
all associated with Ladysafe and Sons and we hopefully move on to even more successful times.”

We were delighted that Friday night was such a success and it was so rewarding to experience the excitement amongst the finalists! I have received many emails from both finalists and local businesses saying how they enjoyed the event and welcome the awards in the community. Sara Olsen
