You are here: Local Women Mid-Ulster
Happy New Year! I hope by the time you are reading this that all your New Year’s resolutions have been abandoned.
I can talk a good resolution, but in reality in 2019 I will probably still be leaving my son to school after the bell has rung, ordering a pizza takeaway on a Monday night and pretending I have a hamstring injury that prevents me from going to the gym. Sure, who likes perfection?!
If there’s one resolution we should all make this year – it’s to enter the Firmus Energy Local Women Awards.
Our awards are being held in April of this year and I have had so many ladies contacting me asking me if they should enter – and of course the answer is yes!
These are your awards. They are for all the local ladies (and of course men) who run the businesses in our communities. You don’t have to be a Local Women advertiser to enter. We simply want to hear from as many business owners as possible who are proud of what they have achieved.
You can enter yourself, enter a friend, and of course you can enter as many or as few categories as you like. Just tell us who you think should win. A panel will decide the short list and then you will be invited along to the Gala Ball at the Europa Hotel in April.
It will be a wonderful night of celebration. So, don’t be shy – every one of you is in with a chance – but only if you fill in the application form which is printed in this magazine or online at www.localwomenmagazine.com.
Now that’s one resolution worth sticking to!
Until next month,
Kim Kelly, Editor
