Salters’ Den is organised by local businesses Howard Worth Chartered Accountants, mosshaselhurst Solicitors, NatWest and Cheshire West and Chester Council. This year’s judging panel includes two new faces, Robert Gore, Solicitor and Director at mosshaselhurst and Councillor Richard Beacham from Cheshire West and Chester Council.

With the competition now entering its fourth year, judging panel member and partner at Howard Worth, Chris Smith, continues to be encouraged by the quantity of applications received and the quality of the new businesses that start in Mid Cheshire each year.

“When we first launched the Salters’ Den competition we didn’t know what to expect from the applicants. What we have assessed have been some fantastic and unique new businesses from passionate and driven entrepreneurs.

“It’s not just the previous winners of the competition that have been able to develop their businesses but many of those shortlisted really benefited from their experience and have made their business dreams a reality.”
