Love Hertford Awards 2020
Following the success of the 2019 Love Hertford Awards, the competition will return for 2020 and launches on 16th March 2020.
Last year over 3,000 votes were cast by the public who selected their favourite traders.
The competition is aimed to recognise and commend traders in the county town of Hertfordshire, highlight the wealth of shops and services on offer in our town centre and neighbourhood shopping areas, and encourage residents to shop locally.
At this stage of the competition, businesses are invited to enter free of charge for a chance to be crowned winner of the following categories:
Pub or Restaurant
Café or Fast Food
Hair and Beauty
Health and Wellbeing
Home and Interiors
Community and Voluntary
Food and Drink Retailers
Professional Services (eg banks, estate agents, travel agents, insurance brokers etc)
Specialised Retail (eg florist, jeweller, dry cleaner, cobbler etc)
Businesses who sell merchandise or offer a service within a retail unit can enter into a maximum of two categories and collect an entry form from the Town and Tourist Information Centre, or enter online by visiting www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/lovehertford
The closing date for entries is Saturday 18th April at 17.00.
The public will then be able to cast a vote for their preferred winner for each category. Information will be provided at the end of April.
The winner and finalist will be announced at an awards ceremony at Hertford St Andrew’s Church on 25th June 2020.
Chairman of the Development and Leisure Committee, Cllr Jane Sartin said: “The Love Hertford Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the wealth of shops and services on offer in Hertford. I encourage all those running businesses in the town centre and community shopping areas which are open to the public to consider entering the competition in order that their customers have the opportunity to vote for them once the competition gets fully underway.”
