The 2021 Awards

Give your business a post-pandemic boost with a CASH award!

Have you responded well in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic? Have you innovated to survive or thrive during the past 18 months? If so, we’d love to hear from you!

The awards have changed for 2021

We have held off having a full competition in 2021, as we recognise that some may see it as a distraction as they continue to fight the consequences of the pandemic, but we are keen to celebrate Newcastle-under-Lyme businesses that took action to weather the storm and those who thrived.

You, as business owners and managers deserve our thanks. You have kept people in jobs and supported the economy of our borough – we know there are many owners and managers like you who have worked tirelessly and we want to shout about them.

Tell us your story and win one of three CASH prizes of £500!

The winners will be chosen by the Business Boost committee, a group made up of local business owners, supported by representatives from Newcastle Borough Council and the Newcastle town centre BID. We’ll be offering CASH prizes for the best stories along with additional prizes from one of our sponsors, Best of British Beer. Plus there’ll be recognition on the Business Boost website and social media.

The winners will be announced at an awards evening on Thursday, 14th October 2021. Venue TBC.

So, get writing!

Closing date for entries is midnight, Thursday 30th September 2021. The informal awards evening will be on Thursday, 14th October 2021 – venue to be confirmed. This year’s competition rules can be found here.
