Since the competition launched in 2015 the judges have been overwhelmed by the quality of new businesses in the local area and the innovation they have shown. The three previous winners all excelled in the “den” and their prizes have led to the further progression for their businesses.
2017 Winner Amanda Lund from Tots Tower is one of them. She commented –
“We have recently passed our first year anniversary and have been able to achieve this through the amount of support we have received from members of the public, the prize money and help we have been given as a result of winning this competition. Winning Salters Den has been such an amazing boost for us and has allowed us to enhance the play centre in ways we didn’t think possible. Our advice to any new business owner is to go ahead and apply for the competition, we did and we haven’t looked back since!”
