THE 2012 Lowestoft & Waveney Chamber of Commerce Business Awards are now open for entries.

The awards, now in their fifth year, are open to businesses of all types and sizes throughout the Waveney district and aim to recognise outstanding achievements, both by businesses and by individuals.

The awards will be announced at a ceremony to be held at the Zest Rooms at Potters Leisure Resort on Thursday, December 6. For full details on categories and how to enter, visit .

The closing date for entries is Wednesday, October 31.

“Despite the continued economic challenges, we see every day how local firms are working harder than ever with the entrepreneurial spirit our county has come to expect,” said John Dugmore, chief executive of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, of which the Lowestoft and Waveney Chamber is part. “It is only right that, whether big or small, they are recognised in this special way.

“It means that those organisations that usually pass under the radar are recognised for the outstanding work that they are doing as well as the contribution they make to our local economy.”
