Thank you to everyone who took part in our first ever Small Business Saturday Awards. This turned out to be a fantastic celebration of the richness and diversity of our great local small businesses.
There were over 700 votes for the Champion Small Business award and over 1000 votes for the Great Customer Service award in the on line poll.
Sixty Six Design organised the Star Network event at the Admin Centre where I presented the Champion Small Business award to The Crows Nest Barbers in Bottesford and the Great Customer Service award to Taylor’s Family Butchers in Ashby. Massive congratulations to both of these businesses who I am sure will continue go from strength to strength.

Congratulations are also in order for the other Highly Commended businesses:
Flower Theatre, Cleatham Hall Hotel, Peekaboo Day Nursery, One Click Photographer, CrossFit Scunthorpe, Twin Tigers, Ashby Funeral Care, The Button Box, and Regal Leaf.
Over a hundred local small businesses were nominted by over a thousand local customers for an award. That shows how much local people value the work that local small businesses do in our community and the contribution they make to our economy. The comments people made about the businesses they nominated were passionate and enthusiatic. In the run up to Christmas we all need to remember to do some of our shopping in these fantastic local businesses.
