Best of Beverley Awards 2024: Nominations Open Until Sunday, 21st April

Nominations for the 2024 Best of Beverley Awards are still open! Submit potential winners before the deadline on Sunday, 21st April 2024, The awards, hosted by Beverley Town Council, recognise businesses and voluntary groups for their community support.

“One of the best things about Beverley is the feeling of community spirit,” said Councillor Tom Astell, the mayor of Beverley.

“Many local businesses go above and beyond their main purpose and do a lot for Beverley and the wider community.

“This is why we’ve launched the Best of Beverley Awards, or The BoBs for short. The aim is to celebrate the contributions businesses make to the local community that sometimes go unrecognised, such as putting on fundraising events for Beverley charities, donating materials to good causes, or going out of their way to check on the wellbeing of customers.

“These public-spirited acts can sometimes be forgotten, which is why Beverley Town Council wants to celebrate them.”

Cafes, pubs, hairdressers, shops, restaurants, accountants, any business can be nominated for The BoB Awards.

Businesses can nominate themselves via an application form on the Town Council website.

Alternatively, members of the public can also send completed forms, if there is a business they want to nominate.

There is also another category, specifically for local voluntary groups and organisations.

“Beverley has lots of community groups that play an important role in the lives of residents,” added Councillor Astell.

“There are sports clubs, youth organisations, advice surgeries, activity sessions, friendship groups, the list goes on.

“For The BoB Awards, we want people to nominate groups that have specifically made a difference to their lives.

“We want your stories so we can thank the groups that have made such a direct, positive difference to your lives.”

The Town Council has set up a webpage explaining more about the awards, including nomination forms that can downloaded for completion at www.beverley.gov.uk/bob

Alternatively, paper copies can be collected from the Town Council’s office at 12 Well Lane, Beverley.

The deadline for nominations is Sunday 21st April. Nominations will be judged by the mayor of Beverley, with winners invited to a special awards night at Parkway Cinema on Friday 10th May.

The Town Council hopes the Best of Beverley Awards will help to raise awareness of the good work done in our community and celebrate all that is great about our town.
