JUDGES’ AWARD Sponsored by Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce
The Citrus Rooms in St Neots may have missed out on the New Business Award but was picked out for special recognition.
Gemma Yule’s beauty and brow bar was nominated for two awards by its customers but a secret ballot amongst the judges decided The Citrus Rooms was this year’s winner.
John Bridge, lead judge and CEO of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, said the quality of entries in this year’s awards was so high, that every judge made a recommendation and was passionate about their choice so a secret vote had to be made.
Ms Yule said: “I’m so excited. It’s unbelievable that my customers put us forward for the award. I have a great team of people behind me and great customers who make the company.”
The judges said: “Citrus Rooms, which was established only 10 months ago, has grown so much in that short space of time, that Gemma and her husband are considering opening a second salon in another local town.
“This is a true testament to her grit and determination as a business women and demonstrates a great commitment to the local community. ”
