Mercury Business Awards 2020 finalists revealed

More news, no ads


Today (October 30) we reveal the finalists in the Mercury Business Awards 2020.

Although we have taken the difficult decision to cancel our glittering awards ceremony at Greetham Valley - our long standing event partners - which had been due to take place in January, we are still determined to honour the best of the best.

That is why we are recognising our winners with a smaller gathering at Greetham, adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Our judges will now contact the finalists before making their decision, which will be revealed just after Christmas.

The awards would not be possible without the kind support of our sponsors, who we would like to thank: South Kesteven District Council (employee/team of the year); Oldrids & Downtown (best independent retailer); Stamford College (best social enterprise); Alltech (business innovation); The Danish Invader (businessperson of the year); and Bluebird Care (customer care).

Our associate sponsors are Clipsham Stone Cutting, Leo Media, Welland Vale Garden Centre, and Viking Signs.
