My name is Steve Orchard, Chief Executive for Quidem – the proud owners of Touch FM. Since buying Touch FM, I've made it my personal mission to create a station that Burton and South Derbyshire can truly be proud of - and the Pride of Burton Awards are an integral part of that mission.
It is our intention to create an awards ceremony that reflects the best individuals, community organisations and businesses that Burton and South Derbyshire has to offer. Whether you're improving the local economy or the lives of your fellow Burton residents, don't be shy in telling us your story. It's my ambition to bring together a 'who's who' of our local area for a truly glittering celebration of everything that's fantastic round here. With the support of our sponsors, we hope that the Pride of Burton Awards will become part of our annual calendar of events 'round here.
I very much look forward to welcoming over 200 VIP guests to the Branston Golf & Country Club on Friday 6th June 2014.
There are many reasons for taking part in the Awards; you may be looking for the recognition that your organisation deserves, or you just may know someone that deserves to be recognised and honoured for going 'beyond the call of duty' and making a difference to the community. Whether you nominate yourself, your business or someone that you know, don't miss out on the chance to be a part of the inaugural Pride of Burton Awards 2014.
I look forward to seeing you there!
Chief Executive, Touch FM
