I am very pleased to announce that we are once again finalists in the Gloucestershire Business Awards.
Gloucestershire is a great place to conduct business and the Gloucestershire Business Awards aim to promote the county to showcase the best of its business talent. This prestigious event was first held twenty years ago and has become an ideal opportunity for the business community to come together in a relaxed atmosphere to celebrate the best and most innovative companies in the region.
There are thirteen different awards available ranging from Young Business Person of the Year to Family Business of the Year and from Marketing Campaign of the Year to the Best Place to Work Award.

Forest Green Rovers Ladies, that is, as they have won the South West Women's Football League (Eastern Division) in tremendous style after a traumatic pre-season.
The 2016-17 season is the third season that Glevum Security has sponsored the Ladies first team shirts, following some previous dealings with the men’s team.

Christine Hopkins, their Job Mentor Team Leader, explains.
