Nominate Your Favourite Local Business!

If you live or work in LBHF don’t miss your chance to nominate your favourite local business!  You can nominate your Best Hammersmith Business, Best Shepherds Bush Business and Best Fulham Business to receive a prestigious Brilliant Business Award.  Local entrepreneurs recently joined with H&F Council to unveil ‘Upstream’, a new campaign to make the borough the best place to do business in Europe. Two successful local entrepreneurs – Greg Jackson and Sophie Devonshire – spearheaded the campaign and spent nine months listening to local businesses of all sizes to identify what the Council could do to make the borough the best for business.


As a previous winner and recipient of the Customer Service Award, our Director John Horton says, “The awards help spotlight the very best local businesses that go above and beyond for their clients, staff and the community at large.  Voting is now open so voice your support for your favourite local companies today.”


If you own or work for a local business, you shouldn’t hesitate to enter the awards.  It’s free and easy to enter and you can win one of two ways – Judges’ Prize, where your entry is examined by an expert panel of impartial judges, or Public Vote.


The categories are:

  • Best Customer Service
  • Best New Business (under 18 months)
  • Best Place to Eat
  • Best Place to Drink
  • Best Independent Retailer
  • Best Creative Business
  • Best Small Business (employing 10 people or less)
  • Best Local Employer
  • Best Social Enterprise or Charity
  • Best Technology Business

Just download the entry form from the awards website. The website explains what the judges are looking for. You can enter up to two categories. The judges will draw up a shortlist from which they will decide a winner.  The closing date for applications is Friday 27 October 2017.

Get others to nominate you as best overall business in Fulham, Hammersmith or Shepherds Bush.
