Find out who won the awards at East Renfrewshire's Business Awards 2013.


Over 150 guests attended the glittering ceremony at the Dalmeny Park Country House Hotel last week which was hosted by broadcast journalist and TV presenter Sally Magnusson. 

Following weeks of anticipation, application forms and judging panels, finally ..the winners were announced.

Michelle McCabe, Centre Manager at The Avenue Shopping Centre in Newton Mearns, principal sponsor of the East Renfrewshire Business Awards 2013, said: "The awards presentation was a huge success with all the enterprising finalists and winners combining to create an inspiring example of how to tackle the current economic crisis head-on. As a sponsor I was delighted - though not at all surprised - by the response from local businesses to these awards and the exceptionally high standard of entries. Congratulations to all winners - I'm already looking forward to next year's awards!"

John Hamilton, Chamber President said, "I would like to congratulate everyone who entered not just the finalists and winners. The Chamber is proud to be associated with such outstanding companies.  We are delighted we introduced these awards- to recognise the range and quality of businesses that we are fortunate to have here in East Renfrewshire. The event would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors and I would like to thank them for their commitment."

Councillor Tony Buchanan, Convener for Infrastructure and Sustainability explained, "Now, more than ever, it is absolutely imperative that the Chamber and the Council work hand in hand with all of our local businesses. Over the next 5 - 6 years Welfare Reform alone, will literally lift £26 million OUT of our local economy.  It's quite a bleak thought, but when the going gets tough, the tough have got to get going. Our priority objective is creating a vibrant and sustainable local economy. East Renfrewshire is continuing to buck the trend nationally and long may it continue."
