Business owners who when it comes to deciding where to focus their efforts follow the song's advice and Go West will be hoping to scoop a gong in an awards competition.

After a highly successful debut last year the West London Business Awards are back for another salute to hard work and productivity.

Organised by the umbrella chamber of commerce for the left half of the capital and Chart Lane, who specialise in business awards, the event will have a gala ceremony on November 27.

To make it as big as possible they need entries and nominations are now officially open for clients and customers alike to recommend the best in the west.

Entrants can be from all over west London – members or non–members of West London Business - and even those that do business in west London, but may not be based there.
