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. Entry is free and businesses can enter as many categories as they wish. There are two ways to enter. Businesses can enter themselves via the business entries form, while customers can nominate a business on the nomination form. Just click on the relevant form below. Also please read the entry guidelines and the terms and conditions. Entries close at 14.00 on Monday, 10th January 2022.



Judging is independent and online with no outside influences. The entrants who get the combined highest marks from the individual judges is the winner.

Awards Ceremony

This is scheduled for Thursday, 24th February 2022 at Leweston School.
