Annual Queen’s Awards recognise British businesses that have excelled in exporting, social or environmental good works, or innovation and the chamber was told it had won back in April
St Helens Chamber of Commerce has received its Queen’s Award for Enterprise from the Lord-Lieutenant of Merseyside, Mark Blundell, in a special ceremony.

Chamber staff and board members were in attendance for the presentation, as Mr Blundell read out the official notice.
Accepting the a, chamber chairman Graham Worsley, said: “The commitment of our staff is exemplary and the work we do makes a huge impact on people and businesses in St Helens.
“The chamber is an asset to St Helens and we are proud to have had this recognised at the highest level.”
