All businesses are based in North Worcestershire covering Bromsgrove, Redditch and the Wyre Forest area.

Jane Doyle, Communications and Engagement Officer for NWedR said: “We have once again joined with NWBL to organise this competition to highlight what a great place North Worcestershire is to do business.  The area has so much to offer whether you are a small or large business or if you provide goods or services.  Our organisations along with the North Worcestershire Ambassadors are committed to giving businesses in the area a voice, and we thought this was a creative and visual way to showcase this.”

Melanie Hawkett who founded and runs North Worcestershire Business Leaders (NWBL) said: “We’re pleased that local businesses got into the spirit of the competition for the 2019 calendar and decided that we should repeat the project and give the PR opportunity to a further 12 businesses this year.”
