Today we can reveal the shortlists for this year’s North Norfolk Business Awards.

There was an increase of more than 20% in the number of eligible entries compared with last year’s inaugural awards, and the judges have had their work cut out whittling down each category to three finalists.


The shortlists are:

Agriculture, Horticulture & Countryside, in association with Lovewell Blake: Crop Systems, Kelling Estate, Place UK

Business Growth, in association with Four: Anglia DNA Services, Crisp Malt, Hilltop Outdoor Centre

Environment, in association with Fakenham Racecourse: Dad’s Boats, Exo Environmental, Margins Walking and Glamping Holidays

The awards night at Gresham’s School, Holt, on Thursday, February 21, will again be hosted by Chris Sargisson, chief executive of Norfolk Chamber of Commerce.

“The inaugural awards were very impressive, and based on the quality of the entries I’m sure the 2019 event will be even better,” said Mr Sargisson.

“I know it was a tough job whittling down the entries and drawing up these shortlists. I suspect the judges are going to find it even harder to select the winners.”
