14th October 2019

The Riduna Park team were delighted to be among the winners and sponsors at the recent black-tie award ceremony for the East Suffolk Business & Community Awards.

The event, which took place on Thursday 3rd October at The Hangar, Kesgrave Hall, celebrated initiatives that have taken place in East Suffolk over the last 18 months.

As sponsors of the Business Growth category, we were pleased to share in the incredible atmosphere and enjoy the superb entertainment.

The evening was hosted, for a fifth time, by Steve Allen a comedian, writer and presenter of BBC2’s ‘The Mash Report’.

With a record number of entries for the awards this year, the judges had a tough job to shortlist the finalists and agree the winners. On the night there were more than 60 businesses and groups represented alongside the many individual finalists and distinguished guests.

Coderus, Woodbridge Rugby Club and Student Life were among the winners. A total of thirteen awards were presented throughout the evening, covering categories including Customer Focus, Services to the Community, People Development, Encouraging Tourism and Business Growth (full list below). The winners received an eco-friendly engraved trophy.

We extend our congratulations to all.
