East Lancashire businesses take the honours

THREE East Lancashire businesses picked up gongs in the first multicultural E3 Business awards.

More than 700 guests from the North West attended the inaugural awards night at Bolton’s Reebok Stadium on Thursday.

Winners included Roaming Roosters, in Higham, which won Sustainable Business of the Year, Designer Sofas 4 U, Blackburn, took Manufacturing Business of the Year and Bank View Smile Studios, Blackburn, won Investment in Skills.

Robina Mann, founder of Blackburn-based clothing company Amir Hosiery, received a personal achievement award. The awards were hosted and organised by Blackburn-based 1 Events Media and saw 48 finalists battle it out in 12 categories.

Managing director Mubarak Chati said: “These may be challenging econ-omic conditions but there are still many hard-working companies reporting growth and the creation of new employment. It is these unsung heroes that the E3 Awards were founded to celebrate.”

Why do we have 'multicultural Business awards'?

Is this not just another way of keeping people seperate? We should be promoting one unified culture not trying to keep people in their own little isolated worlds.

Here, here Jack. That culture being British. A decent fair Britain which includes everyone, but very much British none the less (which means doing the right thing abroad). The sooner we shut up shop and decide what British is - not promote "muticulturalism" - the more chance we have of saving what our forefathers fought and died for.

Multiculturalism - what is that exactly, and how is working anywhere?

I thought you had tough going the other day incidentally with that uber capitalist dude, Blackburneyes could of been the name. I was going to post but I was nuts busy. I might not always hold to your lefter edge views, but I disagreed with his more.
