#CMB2017 Day 14 of #14DaysOfWinners and we're ending back at the start - or more accurately, with the business who took the #StartUp award. A few years ago, most people had neither heard of nor had any interest in issues relating to #JapaneseKnotweed but that's very much changed as this unwanted guest silently spreads and it rather likes the South Wales area: Swansea alone has enough to cover over 100 full-size rugby pitches and its ability to grow at a yard a week plus its prolific and invasive roots system is quietly doing damage to properties and premises all over the UK: it's costing us about £166 MILLION in weed control and property devaluation EVERY YEAR: its presence can be a make-or-break issue for many house sales. Food for thought? Indeed.
Knotweed Support - Invasive Weed Specialists cover all of the south #Wales area and have committed fully to sustainable and environmentally-friendly removal and control of this pest and they may be a new business but there's substantial experience being drawn upon as they tackle the problem. Find out more about them at
Congratulations to these #worthywinners; we wish you and business continued success 🙂

#CMB2017 Day 13 of our #14DaysOfWinners and the category that we're looking back on today is that recognising the best provider of #ProfessionalBusinessServices. It's a wide category because the kinds of businesses that Wales is home to is as varied in type, size and mission as it's possible to be so we needed to find a winner who had something to offer everyone reliably, effectively and accurately.
We're very happy to report that Wynne and Co, Chartered Accountants was the winner of this category: they consistently offer their clients the most practical, economical and pro-active business advice and tax assistance. Many congratulations to the team in their success!
