As one of three finalists in the Small Business category, Sam Graham and his team will be attending the ceremony and dinner on 20th May at Begbroke Science Park hoping to scoop this prestigious award.

The finalists for  the 2016 awards have been recently announced and in the Small Business category are:

The Small Business category of the awards is open to companies in North Oxfordshire which have been in business for more than three years, and that employ less than 25 employees. 

In 2014, Thames Security was a runner up in the new business category of the awards.  In 2015, the company qualified for entry in the Small Business category and again was a runner up in the competition. 

A large number of North Oxfordshire businesses enter these coveted awards and competition is fierce. While Thames Security has yet to scoop the award itself, it is a great honour to be consistently recognised as one of the top three companies in the Cherwell region.

The Thames team would like to thank the judges and the category sponsors OxLEP (Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership), and wish both Butterflies Healthcare and Healthy Performance every success.
