The brightest stars of the Skipton business community were honoured at a sparkling awards ceremony at the Rendezvous Hotel last week.

The inaugural Skipton Business Awards, organised by Skipton Chamber of Trade & Commerce, brought together companies big and small to celebrate those who are really helping the local economy thrive.

The beautifully laid-out Malham Suite in the Rendezvous Hotel saw more than 230 members of the business community seated for the show, with the atmosphere a mix of excitement, hope and geniality.
