Friday the 13th may be unlucky for some.

But for the winners of the WCNW Chamber of Commerce Recognition awards, it was most definitely one to remember for all of the right reasons.

Chester Racecourse played host to over 300 guests for the West Cheshire & North Wales Chamber of Commerce Annual Ball and Recognition Awards of 2017.
