An Isle of Wight business has scooped an acclaimed award – presented by World Cup winner Sir Geoff Hurst.

Wootton based company Brightbulb Design claimed the title of Small Business of the Year at the annual South Coast Business Awards last Friday (13).

The awards, which were held in Southampton, cover the whole of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

The award was presented by Sir Geoff Hurst

The win makes the business the first from the Isle of Wight to ever claim the gong.

Sir Geoff Hurst, who runs his own business, handed out the honours. Matt Jeffery, Founder and Managing Director of Brightbulb said of the win:

“What an evening! Not only to win the Small Business of the year award across the South of England but to be handed the trophy by an icon like Sir Geoff Hurst made the moment monumental. We have and continue to work incredibly hard at Brightbulb to push the business forward and do things differently and being the first Island business to pick up an award here is massive for us and great for the Island.”
