Award Winners

We’re thrilled to announce that Provident IT Solutions were nominated for and got through to the finals of two categories in the Melton Times Achievement Awards of 2018: Best New Business & Best Young Entrepreneur!

Yesterday we arrived at Brooksy Hall, all suited and booted, and after heading straight to the bar (of course) got to mingle with all types of dedicated and hard working people. We made some new friends from the Gates Garden Centre and Off the Beaten Path cafe:

After some drinks and a lovely three-course dinner, the awards ceremony started and Elizabeth McKenna (2017 contestant of The Apprentice) gave a motivational speech about what drives small business owners and why they’re so important. There were many familiar faces, such as the team from the Melton Regal Cinema and the crew from the Performing Stars Academy! The first award? Best New Business of 2018! The winner was the Apteekki vegan restaurant, congratulations to their hard-working team. We were lucky enough to be finalists for this award, and were also invited on-stage to claim our framed certificate.

A huge thank you and congratulations to all those involved, here’s to the next year! ?
