After making it through to the final of the Niche business awards we were both excited and delighted to be attending such an illustrious event alongside fantastic businesses which in itself was a huge compliment to us and a sign of how far we’ve come in the past year. 
The night itself was a glamorous spectacle at Athena where we swapped dust sheets for the red carpet which certainly made a change. Champagne flowed and the meals came and were soon gone as the award ceremony commenced. 
The Awards 
The most glamorous fixture in the Leicestershire business calendar proved to be exactly that as prestigious awards for Best Restaurant, Fashion, Sport and Motor among others were handed out to worthy winners. In the Construction & Trade category sponsored by Michael John Flooring we were nominated alongside last years winners, the brilliant Leicestershire Garden Design Co. and TMDP Group Limited as well, both successful business that we’re proud to be considered alongside. 
After a suspenseful moment we were announced winners of The Trade and Construction category to claim our maiden award! We’re immeasurably proud of ourselves, our work and our team this year and once again we’d like to give huge thanks to everybody for making this possible and especially Cross Connections for putting on a fantastic event. This year we made a commitment to becoming a bigger and better business by embarking on a process of growth and implementing all manner of new systems and processes which has led to us being more efficient so we’re delighted it’s helped pay off already. 
Glenfield Electrical 
We recently carried out some PAT testing for the Samaritans Leicester Branch 
Unfortunately mental health issues are still burdened with a stigma that they aren't as important as physical issues but day by day the awareness is growing and issues are being overcome with the vital work of charities like the Samaritans. The confidential support they offer people is invaluable and they're always there if needed so providing PAT testing for products they were selling to raise money was the least we could do, a TV that we tested at the branch was able to sell for £60 which although isn't a lot it's a small gesture that helps the brilliant service continue. 
Nobody likes being lectured at about charity but we'd love to hear it if you could donate your time or money to help. 
Glenfield Electrical 
We're delighted to announce that we're in the semi-finals of the Niche Business Awards 2017 for trade. 
2017 has seen Glenfield Electrical sail in to unchartered territory as we have achieved remarkable growth as part of our objective to provide world class service and brighten up everyone's day. Not only that but we've relocated too, we're still in Glenfield you'll be glad to know but now we're in bigger and better premisies nestled in The Mill Lane industrial estate which we hope will enable us to become the premier electrcians in Leicester and Leicestershire. 
Being nominated for the Niche Business awards was brilliant for us as our commitment, endeavour and professionalism has seen us recognised alongside much larger businesses but now we've not only been nominated but made it through the semi-finals! Which is testament to the entire team in being united in the strive for growth by serving our customers the best we can whether that be full house rewires, installing a consumer unit or simply wiring in a door bell. 
We'd like to thank everybody from our customers, suppliers and friends for helping us achieve a brilliant year so far.
