Tendring Blue Ribbon Awards 2022 was a night of both celebration and extreme sadness for businesses from across the whole of Tendring as over 300 people gathered at Clacton’s Princes Theatre for the fifth TBR Business Awards. The awards are organised by TC Group, Barclays and new co-hosts FJG Solicitors who came on board for the first time this year

The glittering event was packed out for the presentation evening which began within minutes of the announcement of the death of Queen Elizabeth 11.

Host Dom Atkins began the awards with a two minute silence and Giles Watling MP paid tribute to the Queen.
