Recognise local business heroes as nominations open for Tendring4Growth Business Awards


Tendring District Council (TDC) is proud to open nominations for the 2024 Tendring4Growth Business Awards.

Featuring new categories and nine awards that highlight different facets of business excellence, the event strives to recognise the diverse hard work and innovation of local companies in every possible way.

Nominations will close on Sunday, 30 June, after which a judging panel will begin the tricky task of short-listing.

Enterprise and business support agency Colbea is the headline sponsor of this year’s awards, with the ceremony taking place at the Princes Theatre in the Autumn, to coincide with the Tendring4Growth Business Fortnight.

Ivan Henderson, TDC Cabinet Member for Economic Growth, Regeneration and Tourism, urged the community to get involved.

“Countless outstanding businesses deserve acknowledgement, and their success stories provide that motivation to others across the district to strive for greater achievements,” Cllr Henderson said.

“The awards were a huge success last year and continue to grow in popularity. 400 nominations were received across seven categories in 2023, and with brand new categories for 2024, we are expecting more nominations than ever before.

“Please make sure you put your nominations in – whether you’re a business owner, employee or loyal customer – so that we celebrate even more great firms in Tendring.”

• Creativity & Culture – sponsored by Princes Theatre
