The waiting is over - tonight is the big night: the Portsmouth News Business Excellence Awards.
We're all looking for to an exciting evening at the Guildhall for the 'Oscars' of the local business world.
We'll be crossing our fingers when they read out the winning names as we're nominated for five awards for which we are nominated.
We’re finalists for the Community Contribution, Employer of the Year and Customer Service titles. We’re also proud to have two finalists in the Apprentice of the Year category, Bruce Scott and Kimberley Gaston.
Just a week to go! The Portsmouth News Business Excellence Awards are jut seven days away, on Friday February 12.
The excitement is building as we look forward to the big night, the 'Oscars' of the local business world.
We're nominated for five awards but equally is important is the opportunity to help celebrate and show just how vibrant a business community we have in the area as well as catch up with some old (and new) acquaintances and give our staff a night to remember.
The Portsmouth News Excellence Awards shortlists are out – and we’ve been nominated FIVE times.
We’re on the shortlist for the Community Contribution, Employer of the Year and Customer Service titles. We’re also proud to have two finalists in the Apprentice of the Year category – congratulations to Bruce Scott and Kimberley Gaston.
It’s a tremendous honour to be nominated once again. Just to be recognised alongside other fantastic businesses in such a prestigious awards competition is a great privilege.
Have you got your ticket yet for the Portsmouth News Excellence Awards?
The annual extravaganza is being held on Friday February 12 at Portsmouth Guildhall to recognise the best businesses and professional individuals in the area.
Tickets have just gone on sale – and people have been urged to snap them up quickly before they sell out.
The black-tie dinner and gala presentation is one of the highlights of the business calendar in Hampshire.
We’ll be attending again this year, as usual, to join in the super celebration.
We’ve lodged our entries for the 2016 Portsmouth News Business Excellence Awards.
Now, it’s fingers crossed as we wait to see if we have been nominated in any of the categories we’ve entered.
They include Community Contribution of the Year for our fundraising efforts for Help for Heroes and the Ickle Pickles charity for premature and seriously ill babies.
We raised £5,138 at our latest charity golf day in April of this year in aid of the two charities.
That brings our total collected for charities and good causes over the past two years to nearly £10,000.
Entries are open for the 2016 Portsmouth News Business Excellence Awards.
We’ll be among the many excellent local firms aiming to claim silverware in the annual ‘Oscars’ of the local business world.
We were delighted to be a finalist in both the Small/Medium Business of the Year and Employer of the Year categories in the 2015 awards, which were held in March at the Guildhall.
We were also nominated for honours in 2014 and in 2013 our Managing Director Bill McAndrew won the Personality and Achievement of the Year title.
A picture story about our trip to the Goodwood Races is in the Portsmouth News today.
It shows some of our team at the racecourse at the start of the evening and is one of many pictures taken on the evening. You can see all the others on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pages/McAndrew-Martin-Ltd/206013979505136
We all had a great night; it was a real highlight of our year - and we're already looking forward to next year.
A story about our recruitment drive to create 10 new jobs has featured in the Portsmouth News today.
We’ve launched the search for new employees as demand rises for our specialist services after our record-breaking 2014.
Apprentices, chartered surveyors and property asset data taggers are all needed as we continue to expand.
Congratulations to all of the winners in the Portsmouth News Business Excellence Awards.
We just missed out on the Small/Medium Business of the Year and Best Employer titles but were delighted to have been nominated for the final shortlists.
There was tough competition across the board for all of the categories - which is good news as it shows just how well business is picking up in the area following the worst recession in living memory.
