The awards, run by North Norfolk District Council, will be the culmination of a process that got under way last year.

The event, which will be held at Gresham’s School, is being put on as part of the council’s efforts to promote the quality and diversity of the district’s business scene.

Cllr Tom FitzPatrick, Leader of NNDC, said: “We had a tremendous response to these awards. There were dozens of entries across all seven categories, and I know the judges found it very hard to pick the finalists – let alone the winners – in each category.

“We always knew we’d have a strong set of entries but we were bowled over by the quality.”

He added: “We regularly deal with some very successful and very exciting ventures, but too often these successes don’t get the recognition they deserve. These awards have helped put that right.

“What is particularly pleasing is that we received entries from businesses of all sizes and from a wide range of sectors, and from across the whole district.

“Tonight’s ceremony will be a celebration of all that is good about the business community, and shows that North Norfolk is a better place for business. The whole point of these awards was to promote and unearth some of the best business stories across the district, and we’ve certainly achieved that.”

The awards are being supported by Anglian Water, eastlaw, the Fakenham & Wells Times, New Anglia LEP, Norfolk Hideaways, the North Norfolk News, Spire Solicitors and Start&Grow, and NNDC is grateful for this support.

The evening will be hosted by Chris Sargisson, chief executive of Norfolk Chamber of Commerce.

He said: “The future and growth of the economy across the county – including in North Norfolk – is centred on recognising brilliance, supporting the region as a place where success thrives and, most importantly, celebrating the best.”
