It's an honour to be nominated and shortlisted for the award amongst many other great women doing amazing things in business in East Sussex. I'm very proud of what we are accomplishing here at Swindells with a brilliant team. We've had our ups and downs over the years including our office being completely burned down and yet we were up and running two days later...I'm looking forward to the awards night.'
