ORGANISERS have revealed the categories for this year’s Wellingborough & East Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.
The awards, which celebrate commercial success, opened for entries earlier this month after an absence in 2021 due to the global pandemic.
The five categories up for grabs this year are Services Business of the Year, Retail Business of the Year, Industry Award, Chamber Community Award, and Excellence Hero Award.
Chamber president Pritesh Ganatra said: “After the global pandemic halted last year’s awards, we are delighted to be back and ready to celebrate businesses in the area with five categories, including this year’s Excellence Hero Award.
“For the Excellence Hero Award, we are looking for businesses, charities, and organisations that have supported their customers, other businesses and any local community services during the pandemic, especially during the full lockdown periods experienced over the past two years.”
All businesses across the Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire area and those that show a “significant commercial interest” in the area can enter the awards, as well as Chamber members.
Entrants must display excellence, particularly how they have made a pioneering approach to business as well as showing a commitment to furthering the success of the area.
Mr Ganatra said: “We feel privileged to be able to provide businesses in our towns and villages with this wonderful opportunity to recognise and celebrate their success and hard work.”
The deadline for entries is 6pm on September 30 and the shortlist will be revealed on December 1. The awards ceremony will take place on December 7. For more information on the awards, visit the Awards page or contact the Chamber on 01933 652252.
