We are thrilled to confirm that we are finalists for two different awards at the Small Business Awards Peterborough. This is an awarding body where we were over the moon and overwhelmed that we won an award at last year – but to be back this year, and finalists for two awards, is just incredible.
Of course we would like to start by thanking those lovely people, whoever you may be, for nominating us for these awards. We would also like to thank Laura Bailey, Miss Peterborough and her team for organising the event and choosing us as finalists. Apparently there were over 100 entrants and they could only choose 40!
The team and Locks and Shades as a business have been chosen as finalists for the Peterborough Hair and Beauty Small Business of the Year award. While Donna our founder is a finalist in the Peterborough Small Business Owner of the Year award.
Later this month there will be a public vote which makes up some of our score. We will also have a mystery shopper in our hair salon in Yaxley at some point that will be checking out who we are and how we do things, before 24th August when Donna will be going to have an interview with three judges.
The total score is made up of the interview, the public vote and the mystery customer so we are all very excited but very nervous. We then have to wait until October to find out who the winners of the Peterborough Small Business Awards are.
The Small Business Awards Peterborough ceremony in October looks to be an amazing event and we will definitely be attending as a team to celebrate being recognised in this way – and fingers crossed we can leave with an award again!
The public vote is now open, please vote for us by liking the Peterborough Small Business Awards page and our photo in the 2018 finalists in the link below.
