Bees Knees Awards 2017 – THE WINNERS

What a fabulous evening we had celebrating the very best businesses within Inverclyde at Inverclyde Chamber’s annual Bees Knees Awards 2017!

We were served a delicious meal which featured a Fig, Peach and Stilton Salad, Spiced Lentil Soup, Chicken with Roast Pepper and Chorizo Compote, and a Frangipane Pear Tart to finish. The earth was moved by entertainment Mugen Taiko Drummers, before the nail biting awards began.

It was great to see all the videos and animations we produced for the awards on the big screen
