  • Woodfruits – organic shiitake mushrooms
  • Amber's Rose – flower preservation

The awards were organised by North Norfolk District Council and included a dinner at Gresham’s School. They were hosted by Chris Sargisson, chief executive of Norfolk Chamber of Commerce.

The awards were supported by Anglian Water, eastlaw, the Fakenham & Wells Times, New Anglia LEP, Norfolk Hideaways, the North Norfolk News, Spire Solicitors and Start&Grow.

After the event, NNDC Leader Cllr Tom FitzPatrick said: “One of the main purposes of the awards was to promote the quality and diversity of the district’s business scene.

“If you look at the list of winners it has done just that – businesses large and small; businesses which provide entertainment, specialist services, small scale environmental operations and manufacturing were all included.

“Many thanks to all those involved with supporting the event, entering the awards and, overall, showing that we have a great deal to celebrate here in North Norfolk in terms of business success and ambition.”

The evening also saw the unveiling of one of the Go Go Hares being supported by North Norfolk District Council for this summer’s Break Charity trails around Norwich and Norfolk.

Break representatives attended the awards to speak about the charity, the trails and their gratitude for support from all around the county in setting up the event.

The hare revealed, decorated by artist Anne Schwegmann-Fielding using white, silver and gold crockery, mirror circles and bus shelter glass, will be placed in North Walsham for the opening of the trail in June.
