Councils urge businesses to nominate

With just four weeks to go, South Norfolk and Broadland District Councils are urging businesses to nominate themselves for the 2020 Broadland & South Norfolk Business Awards.

South Norfolk and Broadland Council's Director Phil Courtier said:

“Don’t miss out on nominating your business for these prestigious awards, which celebrate excellence, innovation and best practice. Whether you’re a small start-up, a local retailer or a larger organisation, nominate yourself and get the recognition you deserve.

“Take this opportunity to celebrate and showcase your success and the outstanding hard work of your staff.”

The awards are open to any business - big or small - that operates in the Broadland and South Norfolk district. Businesses can nominate themselves in any of the ten categories.

Residents also have the chance to win £100 of shopping vouchers by nominating their favourite retailer. The Retailer of the Year award recognises high street businesses that have gone the extra mile.

Sponsored by Fosters Solicitors with media partner Radio Norwich, the awards’ categories are:

Excellence in Digital Creative and ICT
Excellence in Life Sciences
Excellence in Advanced Manufacturing
Excellence in Financial Services and Insurance
Innovation in Agriculture, Food and Drink
Visitor Economy Experience
New Business

Retailer of the Year – open for public nomination only

Shortlisted nominees for all the categories will be put to an independent judging panel, and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony held on 26 March, at the Open Norwich.

Nominate your business or favourite retailer by 30 December at www.south-norfolk.gov.uk/businessawards. Retailers can request a free marketing pack to advertise the Retailer of the Year award to their customers by emailing awards@s-norfolk.gov.uk.
