Awards are open for 2018

Lewes District Council is pleased to announce the Lewes District Business Awards are now open for entries following a launch at The Depot in Lewes on Tuesday March 13.

Recognising success, innovation and excellence in the business community, the Awards are free to enter and open to organisations of all sizes and sectors. They offer a fantastic opportunity for many different types of businesses to come together and celebrate the District’s business talent and achievement.

Attendees heard from previous winner, and now sponsor, Wave Leisure Trust on what makes an award entry stand out while Deputy Leader of the Lewes District, Councillor Elaine Merry, thanked this year’s sponsors for their continued support.

She said: “It is an exciting year for the Lewes District Business Awards, with a new and prestigious venue for finals night at the Amex Stadium in July.

“The Awards are a wonderful way to celebrate the vibrant and innovative business community in Lewes and they couldn’t take place without the support of our fantastic sponsors.”

This year’s list of 14 categories to enter include the highly coveted Company of the Year, Best Independent Retailer, Best Green Business and Employer of the Year.

Businesses can enter up to three categories and deadline for submissions is 30 April 2018.
