Fenland Business Awards 2023

Fenland Business Awards 2023 - Whitings LLP 4th April 2023
We are extremely proud to have been headline sponsors for this years’ Fenland Business Awards which was hosted at the Braza Club in March. The event was a celebration of the successes of individuals and businesses operating in the Fenland region, ranging from apprentices and charitable organisations through to large and well established companies.



12 awards were fiercely contested on the night, including categories for “Best New Start-up”, “Business of the Year” and “Independent Retailer of the Year”.


Here are my three key takeaways from the event;
  • It was fantastic to be able to celebrate with representatives of this vibrant and growing business community in which Whitings LLP have been an integral part of for nearly 100 years.


  • The Fenland business landscape is changing….for the better. Growing at an impressive rate compared to other parts of the country with an increasingly diverse range of sectors doing business here.


  • Given that this is the first event held in the area by Iliffe Media, we are very much looking forward to working with them in delivering an even bigger and better event in 2024.


Look out for blogs on how you and your business can take part later on in the year.
