“I am delighted to be involved in the awards and that once again I, along with my fellow Place Board members, will be part of the judging panel. It’s a privilege to see the wonderful range of success stories that are submitted.”

Cllr Graham Morgan, leader of Knowsley Council said: “Our business community and its people have so much energy and determination they really are the driving force behind Knowsley’s growth journey. I would like to encourage all organisations submit a nomination and to join us and celebrate the outstanding talent we have here in Knowsley.”
