Cheltenham BID Awards 2018 – vote now!

 

We are absolutely delighted to be launching the inaugural Cheltenham BID Awards.

We want to celebrate the brilliant businesses that make Cheltenham town centre the lively, diverse area that it is. Across 10 categories, the Cheltenham BID Awards 2018 will reward the very best in the BID zone.

Nominations are permitted direct from businesses or from your customers. It’s easy to enter. Just click here

Cheltenham BID has worked with Cotswold Life Business & Professional to launch the new awards.

BID Director Kevan Blackadder said: “It’s absolutely crucial that the BID helps its businesses celebrate the great things they do for the people who shop, eat, drink and live in Cheltenham. Partnering with Cotswold Life is a great way of making that connection.”

If you run a brilliant business in the BID zone and you’re proud of what you do, please enter. And if you know a potential winner – be it a hair salon, a cracking pub, a charming shop assistant or an estate agency – you can nominate them using the same link. We’re looking forward to celebrating all your incredible achievements, and putting Cheltenham firmly on the map.

A panel made up of BID Chair Terri Brewster, BID Director Kevan Blackadder, Editor of Cotswold Life Mike Lowe and the Manager of Marketing Cheltenham Kelly Ballard will judge the entries on March 9.

Winners and entries who are highly commended will be contacted the week after the judging.
