Dawson’s Department Store was awarded the Retail Business of the Year title and Silverwood’s Waste Management were winners for the second year running, this time in the Green Business of the Year category, having last year picked up the award for Rural Business of the Year.
The Red Rose Awards, now in their fourth year, are designed to celebrate business in Lancashire and provide the best possible platform to promote success and encourage inter-trading within the county.
Simon Dawson, a director at Dawson’s Department Store, the Clitheroe-based family firm said: “We are delighted to have won this award, especially when there are so many great and successful retailers within the county.”
Julian Silverwood, managing dDirector of Silverwood’s said: “Since we started the company, it has been our aim to continue to achieve 100% landfill diversion and it’s important for us to be able to demonstrate this to our clients. Winning Lancashire’s Green Business of the Year Award has helped us to do this and it really is a big achievement and a fantastic reward for the efforts made by the team.”
