GPH Builders Merchants are sponsoring the category of ‘Best Trades Business, 0-10 Employees’, and here is a quote from last year’s winner of this award.

“I am so chuffed to have been fortunate enough to win an award for Lethenty Cabinetmakers. This award will be a great help in my campaign to relaunch my business following the Lethenty Mill fire, and it is also a huge boost for the four guys who work for me. They have shown me such dedication, and they have worked so hard to get the workshop up and running again, to win this award feels like all our efforts have been worthwhile.”
