Pughs of Shrewsbury has been recognised for its dedication to the local community.
We were shortlisted as a finalist in the Business in the Community category at this year’s Shropshire Business Awards.
And despite narrowly missing out on the top award, the recognition was certainly a welcome addition to our proud history.
Managing director Peter Forrest, said: “Our company was established in 1890, and has been based in the county town for four generations. We are wholly committed to putting something back into the Shropshire community which has been so important to our business for so many years.
“And to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award was a wonderful tribute to the hard work and commitment shown by all our staff in supporting so many local organisations and causes.”
The Shropshire Business Awards were held at The International Centre, Telford, and more than 600 people from across the county came together to recognise the very best in business in the area.
