Crescent Funeral Services first applied for Taunton Deane Business Awards in 2017, and returned to TDBA18, entering into two categories in which they were shortlisted for both! One of the categories was Customer Excellence, which is one of our more popular category’s. Being short-listed was a great achievement – last year the bar was set very high!
Simon Helliar-Moore tells us of their experience:
Being part of the Taunton Deane Business Awards really helped us to build confidence in our business and gave a validation from the business community that we were doing something right!
It was nerve racking, laying open our business to others outside our field, but it made us so proud to present Crescent Funeral Services to the judges.
The evening ceremony was superb, we were given such a warm welcome and I truly believe that people were able to see what we were trying to achieve to change attitudes towards Bereavement.
A year on and our business grows from strength to strength and in part this is thanks to the confidence boost the awards provided.
We met some wonderful people and it has provided a friendly relationship between us and several other businesses in the town.
