Chance to cast your vote for your favourite business

The hunt is on to find Wellingborough’s favourite business with the launch of a contest aimed at showcasing the best of the town centre.

People are being asked to rate town centre businesses in the new Pride of Wellingborough awards organised by the Wellingborough Business Improvement District (BID) – which is paid for by town centre businesses – through its Discover Wellingborough campaign.

Every Friday starting tomorrow a short review of a shop, pub and restaurant, health and beauty salon or professional services businesses will be published on the Discover Wellingborough website and promoted on its Facebook and Twitter accounts.

People are then encouraged to give the business a star rating for each of the categories, including customer service, atmosphere, quality of offering and overall. The businesses with the highest ratings will be shortlisted for an end-of-year award.

The competition is open to businesses in the Wellingborough BID area. To take part, email
