Shaftesbury Business AwardsThe Shaftesbury Business Awards, which launched in late September, have now seen the number of entries and nominations break the one hundred mark with two weeks still to go before entries close on 28th November.

The awards are described as grassroots businesses awards that focus on promoting the range and quality of local businesses. The idea was first mooted during the lockdown and the concept developed after that.

Organizers say they are totally different from the usual awards; they are held at lunchtime, and there’s no cost for businesses to enter. Businesses also can enter as many categories as they want.

The judging also breaks the mould with judging online and even the judges don’t know who the other judges are.

Nigel Reeve of organisers MW Events said: ‘Local businesses and SMEs help drive the economy in this country. Large or small they are the backbone of the UK economy driving recovery and prosperity.

‘Until recently business awards focused on larger-sized businesses and covered large geographical areas. These are different. The focus is on local businesses.’

Entries close at 2pm on Monday, 28th November so there are still two weeks to go. The awards ceremony is at lunchtime on Thursday, 26th January at the Grosvenor Arms Hotel in Shaftesbury.

To enter, businesses just have to go to the awards website: www.shaftesburybusinessawards.co.uk.
