People’s Choice Award

We are delighted to announce that once again we will be opening up for nominations People’s Choice Award. This award  is all about recognising the outstanding contribution that an individual has made in their community.

We are looking for people to nominate others who they feel should be celebrated. The nominee can be someone who has driven the project forwards from initial idea through to getting the trading activity up and running, or they might be someone who volunteers and in small but important ways makes other people’s lives better just by being there.
