Businesses have until noon on Monday, October 15 to enter the Spirit of Enterprise Awards 2018, the largest celebration of business in the Great Yarmouth borough.

Organised by enterpriseGY, Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s business support service, the awards aim to recognise and raise the profile of the borough’s top-performing companies.

The awards have nine categories, with the winners of each considered for the title of 2018 Business of the Year by overall award sponsor Noritake Itron.

The awards are free to enter online and finalists will be profiled in a supplement in the Great Yarmouth Mercury, with winners appearing in a further supplement.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council leader Graham Plant said: “This awards scheme is another way that the council is supporting the local economy, boosting investor confidence by showcasing the many brilliant businesses of all sizes and sectors from across the borough.

“We always have great feedback, with past winners saying the recognition has helped to boost staff morale, their profile and their reputation with customers.

The finalists and winners will also be showcased at an awards ceremony and gala dinner at the Town Hall’s Assembly Room on Friday, November 23.

Each award is backed by a local organisation. Sponsors choose the winner in their category from three finalists shortlisted by an independent panel or by the category sponsor themselves.

Mr Plant added: “This is a fantastic opportunity and a great celebration of business excellence that has only been made possible thanks to the sponsors.”

Andy Stubbings, of main sponsors Noritake Itron, said: “Entering these awards is a chance for businesses to showcase their achievements on the public stage, helping to boost their stature, reputation and staff pride.

“There are some excellent businesses right across the borough and we know it will be hard to choose the 2018 Business of the Year.”
