COMMERCIAL success took pride of place at Dukinfield Town Hall, on October 25.

Television presenter Andy Crane was MC for the Pride of Tameside Business Awards which recognised and rewarded companies that are making their mark nationally and internationally despite the difficult economic climate.

Cllr Brenda Warrington, the executive leader of Tameside Council, said: “The presentation evening was a fitting showcase for the breadth of talent, enterprise and ingenuity that exists within the Tameside business community.
