Update as of 1st October 2021



These are grassroots business awards focusing on the quality and range of local businesses. 


The awards are not an excuse for a party. The focus is on the entries and not the event. It's a chance for local businesses to get together, while the awards presentation will also be live-streamed to reach the maximum number of people.

Our Five-Point Promise

  1. The role of the awards is to promote the range and quality of local businesses.

  2. Entry will be free.

  3. Judging will be independent and online with no outside influence.

  4. There will be a category for every business.

  5. The awards ceremony will be open to all. The cost to attend will just be the cost to us.



Entries are now open. To entry click on the below button to complete your entry or entries. Good luck.
