Show your love for your favourite ‘local’ by nominating it for an Albert-Eden Business Award.
Now in its second year, the awards celebrate and acknowledge quality, professionalism and excellence for businesses in the Albert-Eden Local Board area.
Albert-Eden Deputy Chair Glenda Fryer is excited to open nominations.
“Last year we had a fantastic response from the community, locals really got involved and backed their favourite businesses to succeed. The awards play an important part in encouraging our locals to buy local.
“We’re really spoilt for choice in the Albert-Eden area, there’s so much quality competition, it’s hard to single out individual winners. It’s great for the community to support and back the local business we have in Albert-Eden.”
Albert-Eden Chair Dr Peter Haynes agrees.
"Our iconic character, heritage town centres and commercial areas are a great attraction to locals and visitors from overseas and other cities. The awards help local business people to think about how they can make their enterprises succeed even more"
This year there are seven categories to choose from, as well as the prestigious People's Choice Award and Supreme Award. The categories are:
- Business & Professional Services
- Health & Beauty
- Retail – more than 10 staff
- Retail – fewer than 10 staff
- Hospitality – licensed
- Hospitality – non-licensed
- Manufacturing and Trade
The winners will be announced at a special black tie evening on Wednesday 17 May.
Last year Kingsland’s Forage Café took out the Supreme Award and Farro Fresh Epsom won the People’s Choice Award. Who will take home top honours in 2017?
