bodyshop Awards 2015 finalists announced

Following on from Tuesday’s Jury Day where there was much deliberation, we can now reveal this year’s bodyshop Awards 2015 finalists.

Following weeks and months of tireless effort by our extended team of awards assessors – Tim Marshall, Jason Moseley, John Thompson and David Young – the awards process reached critical point during Jury Day. Having whittled down initial submissions, our team of assessors then undertook a vigorous schedule of calls, interviews, site visits, data gathering and report writing. These findings were then presented to our Jury of experts for cross examination and ultimate judging.
