The red carpet was rolled out to welcome the best in business on Thursday evening at the borough’s largest awards ceremony.

Orpington’s Finest Awards, or “The Orpies” as it has become affectionately known, was organised by Orpington 1st Business Improvement District, sponsored by Perrys and the Walnuts Shopping Centre and supported by Insight 6

Held at ODEON Orpington for the fourth year running and making use of its state-of-the-art facilities, the event welcomed 200 guests representing 45 organisations including the Mayor of Bromley, senior representatives of Met Police and London Fire Brigade, local councillors and members of Bromley Dementia Action Alliance.

Following a drinks reception, a packed-out Screen 2 hosted the official proceedings which saw a series of films being shown on the big screen, celebrating over 30 shortlisted businesses across 13 categories.

Orpington 1st BID Manager Chris Travers, said, “It’s been a brilliant evening, and a great celebration of the strength of our business community. Everyone here tonight has demonstrated a true understanding of the increasing importance of providing an exceptional customer experience, inspiring loyalty not just to their respective businesses, but also to the town.”

Executive Director, Sharon Baldwin, said, “congratulations to all the finalists, but the real winner tonight is Orpington town centre. We in the BID team know the quality and diversity of business within the town but it’s great to have the opportunity for that to be recognised publicly.”
