At Your Service Awards – 25th June 2015


I’m very pleased to report back that the Hove and Portslade ‘At Your Service Awards’ ceremony went very well last Thursday (25th June) evening, we were very fortunate with the weather, a beautiful warm summer’s evening which meant that the students were able to hold part of the evening outside as planned!  Talia French from Juice 107.2FM compered the awards, with lots of people attending and congratulations to the following people/businesses for picking up an award:

Best Shop in Hove – City Books

Best Shop in Portslade – Mulberry

Best Place  to eat in Hove and Portslade – Café Quench

Best Speciality Business – Studio 57

Best Professional Service – Search Seven

Best Pub – The Foragers

Business Personality of the Year – Elle Phillips (Studio 57)

Best Newcomer – Amazing Ovens

Best Pet Service – Waggie Tails Dog Grooming

Best Charity – Lost Cats Brighton

Best Driving School – LadyDrive and His and Hers Driving School


We were also treated  to a dance score from girls from the Dance Academy and some fantastic singing from two girls from the Performing Arts department – PACA should feel proud of the level of professionalism these students portrayed. When I heard the rehearsals earlier in the day I thought I was in a London theatre listening to a musical!!

I know there were some disappointed people too, who didn’t win this year but I thank each and everyone of you for taking part, spreading the word and getting your customers to vote. Evaluation takes place today and we will find out exactly how many votes came in – we really did leave that last stage to the students to add up! We will also look at ways in which it can be improved on for next time.
