“The level of engagement we get from our teams is fantastic and the opportunities that are created for our business as a result are simply tremendous. This award is simply a reflection upon those who work in our company and the commitment they have to it to deliver great local radio to the communities they serve,” he said.

The award was collected by Sian Woods, the groups Assistant Company Secretary and Dawn Wilson, the receptionist at Pirate FM.
