The Midlands Business Award was presented by David Smith, Leader of Lichfield District Council, at a recent ceremony at Villa Park’s Holte Suite.

Sponsored by some of the biggest businesses in the region, including Aston Villa and Challinors Solicitors, the awards include categories ranging from retailer of the year, through to employee of the year.

This year, the Lichfield Community Support Award, sponsored by Lichfield District Council, was awarded to the Lichfield Festival.

Councillor Smith explained:

“We were delighted to sponsor the Lichfield Community Support award, and even more delighted that the Lichfield Festival scooped the top spot.

“From helping local school children to get involved in the arts, through to offering hundreds of volunteering opportunities, The Lichfield Festival is a key part of the local community.”

Jennifer Smith, Learning and Participation Manager of The Lichfield Festival, added:

“We are absolutely delighted to receive such a prestigious award, which underpins one of our key ambitions, to support and enhance the local community.”

Other Lichfield winners include Heritage Stairlifts – winners of the New Business award, Robert Carr Jewellers who were highly commended in the retailer of the year, and St Johns House which was highly commended in the new business and customer service categories.
