Now in its ninth year, The Goole & Howdenshire Business Excellence Awards recognises and celebrates business excellence in Goole and the surrounding area.

“We have been hugely impressed by the range and quality of the applications and the demonstrated business acumen of so many of our local organisations. The Awards present a perfect opportunity to demonstrate that Goole & Howdenshire is a place to do business.”

The Shortlist is Announced!

After studying more than 70 entries and much deliberation, the judging panel for the 2019 Goole and Howdenshire Business Excellence Awards has announced its shortlist.

The judges also selected a winner for the Overall Business of the Year category (sponsored by Link Agency) and the organising committee chose the recipient of the  Lifetime Achievement Award (sponsored by Glews Garage). All of the winners will be announced at the annual Goole and Howdenshire Business Excellence Awards ceremony, will take place at Goole High School on Friday 22 February 2019. Tickets for the event are now on sale from the website –

Awards committee Chairman Garrey Haase said: “Last year we received a record-breaking number of entries so it was fantastic to receive such a high number once again, including many from businesses and organisations that have never entered before. I can only imagine what a tough time our independent panel of judges must have had whittling them down to come up with this incredibly strong short-list!

 “On behalf of the organising committee, I’d like to thank our judges and everyone who entered, and wish of our finalists the best of luck!”
