Business Award finalists announced

Broadland and South Norfolk Business Awards 2023

The 2023 Broadland and South Norfolk Business Awards finalists have been announced.

Organised by Broadland District Council and South Norfolk Council the awards celebrate the excellence, innovation and best practice shown by businesses across the combined area.

South Norfolk Council’s Cabinet Member for Stronger Economy, Councillor Lisa Neal, said:

“These awards are an excellent opportunity to celebrate the hard work and commitment of our local businesses. It is exciting to see how much their success is driving our vibrant local economy.”

Broadland District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Economic Development, Jo Copplestone said:

“Businesses in Broadland have definitely bounced back after the recent challenges, which is a huge achievement. I am delighted that we received so many excellent applications, making it incredibly difficult to shortlist just three for each category.”

The Councils received hundreds of nominations for the very popular Retailer of the Year Award, which recognises high street businesses that have gone the extra mile and over 1,000 nominations for the new Pub of the Year Award. This award recognises the exceptional pubs that we have in both districts and the part they play in their communities.

Congratulations to all finalists and thank you to everyone who put their business forward for an award or nominated their favourite retailer and pub.
