Entries have opened for the second annual Wellingborough Chamber of Commerce business awards.

Designed to celebrate commercial success, the awards are open to all businesses across the borough, not just existing members.

Entrants need to demonstrate excellence, specifically how they have made a pioneering approach to business as well as showing a commitment to furthering the prosperity of the borough.

Businesses can enter four categories, including: Services Business of the Year, Retail Business of the Year, Manufacturing Business of the Year and Chamber Community Award.

Rob Hart, chamber president, said: “The aim of the awards is to celebrate excellence and applaud the efforts of businesses within the borough of Wellingborough.

“There are a lot of businesses in the area who are showing promise in helping the town reach its potential economic output, and it’s important to signify those top performers.

“Our first awards, held last year, were a huge success, providing a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the success and hard work of business in our town. We’re delighted to be able to host the awards again and hope businesses will once again get involved to allow the awards to be a success.”

Entrants don’t need to be members of the Chamber, but their business must be situated in the borough, or show a ‘significant commercial interest’ in the area.

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at Wellingborough Golf Club on Thursday, October 9 that will include presentations from key note speakers.

An online entry form is available on the website www.wellingboroughchamber.co.uk

The closing date for entries is Thursday, August 31.
