Last night local businesses got together to celebrate the finest that Orpington has to offer.

Those businesses that have shown excellence in all aspects of business were honoured at last night's drink reception, hosted by Orpington 1st.

The fun and relaxed atmosphere highlighted the positive spirit within the business community, and it was great to see so many neighbours networking.

The evening started with a Lion Dance performance in celebration of Chinese New Year, a traditional symbol of good luck and prosperity for businesses in the year ahead. It was an interesting performance, and will certainly be remembered by all present!

Those shortlisted showcased the strength and variety of businesses within Orpington, and it was good to see some of the more established businesses win alongside newcomers to the town.

Please pass my congratulations to all of the winners and runners up, sorry I could not be there, as it clashed with the evening of the Mayor's Quiz..
