A HEREFORD web design firm has said being shortlisted for awards has been helping to raise the profile of the city.

Voodoochilli Design, based in King Street, were one of the firms shortlisted for categories in the West Midlands Federations of Small Businesses (FSB) awards.

"We were delighted to win the award for wellbeing business of the year, considering there was such a high volume of entries," marketing executive Katie Williams said.

"Additionally, we were awarded a highly commended status in the digital/e-commerce category.

"The wellbeing award was sponsored by our neighbours at The Green Dragon Hotel. The Courtyard Arts was also one of the four business we shared the wellbeing category with.

"It was fantastic to have a strong Herefordshire presence at the event, all featuring in such a worthy category, raising the city's profile."

The firm will now head to London in May to attend the national awards ceremony.
