Nominations are now closed.

All the nominated businesses are here! The nomination process has been a humbling one, we have received so many fantastic nominations for so many wonderful reasons. Storm Desmond, personal setbacks, sticking by their staff, family businesses and their ethos are clearly held dear by a great number of you. All nominated businesses were invited to apply to the awards formally, many have already done so and those who haven’t yet still have until midnight on Wednesday to get their application in! Any family business can apply for the awards nominated or not, but for those who were nominated the generous nominations will be shown to the judges with their application and will help provide invaluable information to the judges. Watch this space for the upcoming Shortlist and until then, a round of applause for all the businesses below who received a nomination.
