The Colchester Business Awards 2023 last week was a resounding success

At the recent Colchester Business Awards, we have been fortunate enough to have both nominees and winners from Red Lion Yard at the sold out event, put on to recognise established and emerging business talent in Colchester.

Danielle Styles

Firstly we must congratulate Danielle Styles as winner of the Independent Retailer of the Year. Her fashion retail brand, established in 2020 amidst the chaos of the pandemic, has thrived since opening of her first store in 2021. She is now delighted to have opened a second store here in the heart of Colchester for which she was lauded.
