This year’s award sees ten awards up for grabs, as well as the Norbar Overall Cherwell Winner, which will be presented to one of the finalists from the ten categories.

Cllr Donna Ford, portfolio holder of regeneration at Cherwell District Council, said: “Overall, the recent business survey of over 700 cherwell businesses has shown this district to be a great place to be.

"It is by no coincidence that long-standing initiatives such as the Cherwell Business Awards exist to lead business excellence and to ensure that all businesses can engage with the community.

"I urge you to spread word of the awards, to nominate, and to gain recognition of all the fantastic activity in Cherwell!”

Nominations will be open until Wednesday May 1, with applications from businesses open until Wednesday May 29.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Chesterton Hotel on September 13.
