Two of North Dorset’s biggest business awards are closing this month – if you’re connected to a business based in Sherborne or Shaftesbury then now’s your chance to get your entry polished and sent off before the closing date.
Entries for the inaugural Shaftesbury Business Awards opened in September, and organiser Nigel West of MW Events told the BV that over 50 entries and nominations were submitted in the first 24 hours.
‘The response has been incredible. The awards simply focus on promoting the range and quality of local businesses. Entry is free, businesses can enter as many categories as they wish, and they can also get their customers to nominate them.’
Entry deadline is on Monday 28th November, and the awards ceremony will be at The Grosvenor Arms in Shaftesbury on Thursday 26th January.
Sherborne Business Awards are back for their second year –entry deadline is 2pm on Friday 11th November, so get your entry double checked and completed! The Sherborne Awards Ceremony will be on Thursday 12th January.
Nigel said: ‘We are proud to run grassroots business awards, focussing purely on the quality and range of local businesses. They are open to all – businesses, organisations and institutions – and I firmly believe that the awards should not simply be an excuse for a party. The focus is on the entries, not the event. However, it is a great opportunity for local businesses to get together.’
