Which Wantage or Grove business gives exceptional customer service? Which is your favourite Wantage or Grove restaurant and pub? And which Wantage town centre business has a shop front to be proud of? It’s time for people living in and around Wantage and Grove to have their say in the Local Business Awards.
The now annual awards, run by Wantage Town Team and supported by Wantage & District Chamber of Commerce for Small Business Saturday, give people chance to vote via www.wantageandgroveloyalty.co.uk/ in five categories:
- Favourite Restaurant Award
- Favourite Pub Award
- Mayor’s Shop Front Award
- Exceptional Customer Service Award: Shop Category
- Exceptional Customer Service Award: Non-Retail Category (This could be a business type such as financial, legal, house related or business support providers, healthcare or beauty services, a tradesperson, or any other local business that does not operate from a shop premises)
There will be a winner and a highly commended in each category, with the winners awards presented at Wantage & District Chamber’s annual Christmas Party on the evening of Tuesday 12th December at Wildwood Restaurant.
Wantage & District Chamber of Commerce Chairman, Matthew Chapman, says: “The Chamber is delighted to support Wantage Town Team in these annual business awards. We are tremendously proud of the businesses in and around our town and it’s time to celebrate them. I was involved for the first time last year, and it was great to see just how important this is to the winning businesses who put so much effort into what they do. It is vital that we continue to recognise this effort and keep promoting local business. Without our “independents”, the town and surrounding villages just wouldn’t be what they are today. I would encourage everyone to spend a few minutes to vote.”
The five business award winners receive a certificate and a £50 voucher to be claimed against advertising and/or marketing costs.
Anyone can vote. Wantage & Grove Loyalty card holders who complete the questionnaire will be entered into a prize draw, and the winner will receive a £50 voucher to be spent with one or two local Loyalty Scheme businesses of their choice. Loyalty cards can be purchased from loyalty scheme member businesses. For further information, please visit the Wantage & Grove Loyalty Card website.
