Mayor's Business Awards


Mayor’s Business Awards publicly acknowledge outstanding business achievement and the contribution that businesses make to the West Norfolk economy.


Established in 1989, by former mayor Cllr Les Daubney, the awards recognise the achievements of local businesses and provide them with the perfect opportunity to showcase their success.  This year we joined forces with the Lynn News to make the awards bigger and better than ever.


There were nine categories to enter this year and businesses could enter as many as they wish:


  • Mayor's Business of the Year Award
  • Service With a Smile (reader nominations/reader vote)
  • Apprentice/Trainee of the Year
  • Customer Care
  • Community Contribution
  • Independent Retailer
  • Leisure & Tourism
  • Small Growing Business (for up to five years)
  • Business Person of the Year


Borough Mayor, Cllr Elizabeth Watson, said “We are proud of our diverse businesses in the borough and our wish is always to support and encourage them to further success.


"I am delighted that we are working with the Lynn News on this year’s Business Awards. There are more categories to choose from and together we’ll be encouraging business to nominate themselves in the appropriate categories.


“Promoting our local businesses is very important and past winners have found the publicity and acknowledgement that comes with winning one of these awards to be very beneficial.”
