Still Time to Enter so here's more details
These are grassroots business awards focusing on the quality and range of local businesses.
The awards are not an excuse for a party. The focus is on the entries and not the event. It's a chance for local businesses to get together, while the awards presentation will also be live-streamed to reach the maximum number of people.
