The deadline for businesses to submit their entry to the Havering Small Business Awards closes at 5pm on Friday 3 May 2024.

This year, the awards format has changed to help encourage even more businesses from across the whole borough to enter, with the first round of nominations open for businesses to nominate themselves.

Now in their third year - this year’s awards main sponsor is Havering’s 12 Estates Regeneration Joint Venture Partner, Wates, and media sponsor is TIME 107.5 FM.

The nominations are designed to be straightforward and easy, giving Havering businesses the opportunity to select the one award they think they deserve to win.

When a Havering Business enters, they’ll be asked to explain and evidence why they should be shortlisted for that award.

We have provided some handy tips to help nominees do this quickly and easily.

If a business is successfully shortlisted, we will do a cross check with council teams including business rates, public protection and environmental enforcement, to make sure that they qualify for the next and final voting round.

Then, it will be over to the public to vote on who they think is best!

The three businesses with the highest number of individual public votes from the second round will then be invited to an awards evening in September 2024.
