The event, delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, is organised by Somerset Chamber of Commerce, to give businesses an opportunity to celebrate their achievements in a particularly challenging year.

There is no entry fee and businesses do not need to be a member of the Chamber to take part.

New categories this year include an environmental award, recognising an individual or organisation’s positive environmental impact, and a category for outstanding business response to Covid-19, from supporting key workers, to diversification to protect the business and jobs.

Chief executive of the Chamber of Commerce, Stephen Henagulph, said: “The Somerset Business Awards covers all business sectors across a wide range of categories.

“I would encourage all local businesses to enter and share their own success stories and celebrate their achievements.”
