The 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. It provides them with the perfect opportunity to showcase their success. We have joined forces with the Lynn News to make the awards bigger and better than ever.

In addition to supporting the overall awards, we sponsor the Mayor’s Business of the Year Award. This prestigious award acknowledges businesses that have made a noteworthy achievement during the last year or during a period culminating in the last year.
