The new awards aim to build on the council’s Independent Retailer awards, widening the focus to reflect the diversity of businesses that flourish in the district.

Businesses can nominate themselves for an award in any of the nine categories, while residents can support their favourite business by nominating them as South Norfolk Retailer of the Year.

South Norfolk Council’s deputy leader, Michael Edney said: “We actively support and encourage inward investment and business growth. South Norfolk is home to so many successful businesses, from multi-national organisations, cutting edge tech and bio science companies to the widest range of independent shops and traders.

“These awards are an opportunity to celebrate our successful businesses. If you’re a business owner, put your company forward for the recognition both you and your staff deserve or, if you’re a customer, make sure you nominate your favourite business as our Retailer of the Year.”
