Chair of Business for Calderdale, Nick Worsnop explained, “Calderdale is known for it’s resilient, innovative and successful businesses and we want to celebrate those. Everyone has been working so hard and under so much pressure, they have had to pivot and react quickly to changes in the market, be that operating in lockdown or coping with decrease in availability of materials. We felt it important to reintroduce the Business Awards in 2022 to give people and businesses recognition for going above and beyond.”“The appetite to have Business Awards has been very well received and it’s been heart warming to see sponsors eager to show their support. Headline sponsor BCA Leisure were the first to offer their support and category sponsors were quick to follow. I think this is evidence that the business world is ready to acknowledge the achievements again after the difficult period we have all been through.”If you know a business in Calderdale who deserves to win an award, you can nominate them online by visiting https://businessforcalderdale.co.uk/awards/

Posted on Updated on

Czerwik of Brighouse is well known for its fun cheese and wine tasting evenings which have been held for many years in the shop at Brighouse on a private party basis for groups of friends, family etc. who want to celebrate an event – or simply just to get together for a fun evening.

Business for Calderdale is lucky enough to have secured owner of Czerwick and master Cheesemonger John, for the BFC Christmas cheese and wine evening at the Piece Hall on Thursday 6 December, 7:00pm-9:30pm.

There will be three white wines followed by one beer then three red wines.

Each wine and beer is complemented with a matching cheese, and John will take you through each product providing as much information as possible. The theme for the tasting is simple ‘have fun’ so the whole evening takes on an informal and relaxed atmosphere. John is around to answer any questions you may have on any of the wines or cheeses experienced during the tasting.

There are 50 places available tickets are £25.00 per person and can be booked through Eventbrite.
