We work really hard to ensure great Social Media output and so I’m incredibly proud of the team for achieving this fantastic award and I’d like to thank the British Chamber of Commerce and our own Chamber in Worcestershire and Herefordshire for recognising the work we do. It’s a great boost for the team to be recognised and it’s been a great experience to both receive the rewards and to get the recognition.
