A POPULAR Vale marketing group revealed the Best of Evesham at their annual awards ceremony.
The Evesham Business of the Year 2016 awards were held by thebestof, a marketing organisation committed to raising the profile of independent, recommended businesses serving Evesham and the surrounding area.

The awards operate at a national and local level with a UK Business of the Year, Category Business of the Year and Town Business of the Year.
