Robert said: "Honoured to attend the superb West Oxfordshire Business Awards (WOBA) dinner to celebrate the phenomenal success of business in West Oxfordshire. Our area is filled with thriving, innovative businesses which I am proud to say are going from strength to strength.
"The WOBAs are now established as a fixture in the West Oxfordshire business calendar, and the quantity and quality of entries improves year on year. The competition was immensely strong and I certainly did not envy the judges who had a very difficult task in selecting finalists and winners.
"On behalf of all finalists I would like to pay a special tribute to the WOBA team who put in a huge amount of planning and organisation over many months leading up to the Awards Dinner, as well as the event's sponsors and supporters who make it all possible.
"Finally, a massive congratulations to all entrants, finalists and winners, who really do embody the very best of West Oxfordshire and help make our area the truly special place that it is."
