Morley Business Awards 2014 are gearing up to be the biggest and best yet with the most applications received since they began.

Morley Chamber of Trade and Commerce is hosting the celebration of business and enterprise across the Morley region at an awards ceremony in October.

Town events manager Rachael Kennedy said: “We are delighted with the response to the awards this year from all kinds of different companies and organisations.

“We are looking forward to the event in October where the judges’ decisions and winners of each category will be announced”

This year welcomes a brand new category of Reader’s Choice where for the first time Observer & Advertiser readers will be able to vote for their favourite business or organisation from a shortlist.

The business awards are being sponsored by Land Securities and the White Rose Shopping Centre and individual award sponsors include O2, Optionbox, Robrook Press Ltd, Hytal Kitchens and Bedrooms Limted and Unity Trust Bank PLC.

The awards ceremony and gala dinner will be held at The Village Hotel, Tingley, on Friday October 3 and tickets, priced £30, are available from Rachael Kennedy by emailing
