It will go down in history on the memory book of ALPS as it was the night we got an invite to the top table and recognised for our work and contribution within the community.For the last number of months ALPS has been going through a process which eventually then brought us to the Tullyglass Hotel in Ballymena as finalists of Social Economy Business Of The Year at the Buisness of Excellence Awards.
What an experience this has been, we are truly humbled to have been selected, it's testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment of all the team at ALPS to have been nominated for an award.
Huge thanks to Ballymena Area Chamber of Commerce and Industry and to Mid and East Antrim Council for giving us this fabulous opportunity.
Although we didn't actually win the award following a lengthy process which included, written submission,interview and assessment we got to the final three and are delighted by this achievement.
Great night, we even made a few new friends who will now be visiting our offices soon in their official capacities of MP and Mayor were our plaque will sit proudly on the walls to welcome them.
