We are really proud to have been awarded with medium Business of the Year and Website of the Year in conjunction with River Beach at the recently held Arun Business Partnership Awards!

The Arun Business Partnership (ABP) Awards are an annual event held here in West Sussex. These awards recognise its member’s achievements within the local area.

Winning Business of the Year has been the icing on the cake on what has been an amazing year for Tann Westlake. Having moved offices early in the year we have been able to expand and grow our talent in so many ways.

We have worked with some amazing people this year from local businesses to large global organisations. Irrespective of which industry we have delivered some amazing results for brands such as the Body Shop Foundation, Joe McElderry, Johnson and Johnson and Glaxo Smith Kline.

We began working with River Beach back in March of this year when they were looking for someone to develop a new website. They needed to bring their website up to scratch and allow their creative ideas to come to life. Some of the initial brief included:

  • The need for simple functionality, including a mobile responsive website that could be viewed by parents and children on increasingly popular mobile devices
  • A calendar of events which could be easily updated regularly by teachers and staff to keep parents up to speed with up coming events
  • It needed to reflect the local area, the beach, the river and so forth. River Beach are very much a part of the local community and they wanted to demonstrate this in their website by drawing upon local key attractions in its design
  • They wanted the website to engage students and be fun and stimulating to use

We were delighted to have been asked to work with River Beach on their new website. And when River Beach were announced the winners of the Best Website of the Year 2014 at the ABP Awards, we couldn’t have been prouder and were thrilled for them. We managed to deliver not only on brief but to award winning standards as well!

During the awards Twitter became alive with Tweets of congratulations from Arun District Council, River Beach Employees and various winners.
