Streatham Business awards

Streatham's business community celebrated another year of success at the Streatham Business Awards last night. The awards is organised and funded by InStreatham - Streatham's voice for business.

Our 2018 awards evening was sponsored by Anthony Gold solicitors, and also by our media sponsor Lambeth Weekender, brodcast partner Kapow Network and programme partner Heart Streatham.

The Fourth annual Streatham Business Awards was hosted by multi-talented Eastender's actor, comedian and Dancing On Ice star, Richard Blackwood as we celebrated the best of Streatham Businesses. Nine category awards were presented during the evening with over 200 guests in attendance.

Speaking at the event, the Mayor of Lambeth, Christopher Wellbelove, praised Streathams' growth over the past few years. Our panel of judges were very impressed by the quality of submission from a wide range of fast growing businesses across all 11 categories.

BID manager, Louise Abbotts, added that the awards played an important role. She said: “These Awards showcase the incredible commitment of business onwners in Streatham, all businesses are all winners to us at the BID.”
