Nov. 19, 2012 - PRLog -- The Somerset Business Awards had their highest number of entries ever this year and the judges in each category consistently reiterated how good the quality of the entrants had been. There was a great buzz around the evening, held at the County Ground, Taunton with all the tickets for the event sold out on the day they went on sale.

Editor Andrew Lee commented “We are very proud to have won this prestigious award. It is great recognition from the business community in general and the Chamber of Commerce in particular that we are doing something that is both very different oflg and very successful. I have always felt that the tabloid format of local newspaper is a tired format and this is a great validation for our belief in doing things in a new way.”

This is great recognition from the business community of the success and growth of the paper from an initial circulation of 1,000 copies in Langport and Huish, to the 4,000 a month we have just 2 years later covering the whole of the Somerset Levels. The paper has grown in size too, from 12 pages in that first edition to 44 pages across a Somerset and Langport edition today.

Andrew added “I’d really like to thank our advertisers, distributors and readers who have helped and supported us on this journey. It’s not a social enterprise but sometimes it feels like one and I’m really looking forward to the New Year and taking the paper to the next level.”
