Monmouthshire Business Awards at Torfaen Business Exhibition

ORGANISERS of the Monmouthshire Business Awards will be at the Torfaen Business Exhibition this week.

The exhibition takes place at Cwmbran Stadium on May 17 from 9am-1pm and the awards organisers will be available on the Torfaen County Borough Council stand to answer any questions local businesses might have.

The geographical area for this year’s awards has been expanded to include the ‘old Monmouthshire’ – towns and cities that were part of the county prior to 1965.

Organisers have been turning entries away in recent years because they did not come from the current Monmouthshire local authority area.

Entries are being accepted from businesses in Monmouthshire, Newport, Caerleon, Cwmbran, Ebbw Vale, Usk and Caerphilly.Entries close on July 31, and full details of how to enter are available at

The awards ceremony and gala dinner takes place at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport on October 6.
