Important Announcement

Ian Brown, Chairman of the Hive Blackburn & Darwen Business Awards has issued the following update: “As a steering group we have been monitoring closely the government’s guidance regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and the feasibility of still hosting the much-anticipated Hive Blackburn & Darwen Business Awards later this year.  Our overriding priority has to be the safety of everyone involved and it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel this year’s awards, scheduled to take place on 15th October at King George’s Hall.”

“The committee are working hard behind the scenes to see if there are other ways in which we can still recognise our business community during these unprecedented times and we will update you all accordingly as soon as we can.   We want to thank everyone who has supported the awards so far, including our sponsors and for those that have already taken time to enter.  We will be personally contacting you all and do hope to see your entries next year when we will be able to celebrate once again in true Hive fashion.  In the meantime, we appreciate this is a very difficult and uncertain time for the business community and we want to take this opportunity to say we hope you all stay safe and well.”
