Boost Your Merton Business

Time to enter the borough's Business Awards

Entries are now being sought for the Merton Business Awards 2011, which reward dynamic and innovative business in the borough.

The winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon on September 21.

Entry to the awards is free and there are 11 categories to give all local businesses a chance to enter, including best new business; entrepreneur of the year; best small and best medium-sized business.

All entrants will benefit from an opportunity to showcase their business and celebrate their achievements.

South London Business' chief executive Peter Pledger said at the launch of the 2011 awards: "These awards provide a vehicle for businesses to promote themselves and to stimulate the economy across the borough of Merton.

"Last year we took a risk in launching the awards – some people said it couldn’t be done - but on the night there were 280 businessmen and women at the All England Lawn Tennis Club for the awards ceremony and hundreds of entries, which created a real buzz in the Merton Business community even during a time of recession. Let's do this even better in 2011."

Diana Sterck, Chief Executive, Merton Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise Agency added: "As the borough-based Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise Agency, we are very excited about the awards. They will showcase both the sponsors and winners and help put Merton businesses on the map in these challenging economic times."
