TAKE A BOW Time to honour our business heroes


 Inspirational heroes from Northallerton businesses will be honoured at a gala awards evening this spring.

 The Love Northallerton Business Awards on Saturday 30 April will celebrate the hard-working men and women who make North Yorkshire’s county town such a special place to work, shop and do business.

There are 11 award categories for the 200-plus members of Northallerton Business Improvement District (BID), covering everything from small beauty and hairdressing shops to the town’s biggest retailers.

An independent panel of judges will be looking for examples of outstanding customer service, community spirit and commercial resilience in the face of Covid-19.

This year’s celebrations will build on the success of the inaugural 2020 awards watched by thousands in a virtual ceremony after the original dinner had to be cancelled because of the national Covid-19 lockdown.

“This is a great way to honour those businesses that really go the extra mile for their customers and clients,” says BID manager Graham Bell.

“We’ve seen their passion and commitment shine through during a tough couple of years. This is the chance to give these people the recognition they deserve – from the boardroom to the shop floor.”

Opportunities are still available to sponsor the award categories. The £180+VAT sponsorship fee includes the price of two tickets for the event. Please contact info@lovenorthallerton.com for further details.

An application form for businesses to enter the awards will soon be available to download from this website.
