You can nominate online or by post. All nominations will go infront of a panel of judges who will then research and visit the nominees. The judges are looking for quality not quantity, focusing on good comments rather than number of votes so everybody is in with a chance no matter how big or small the business.
Entries close on Friday 14 June and the awards will be presented to the winners at a prestigious awards ceremony on 22 August at the Four Seasons Hotel in Dogmersfield.
The Main Sponsor of the awards is Colten Care, with Associate Partner The Southern Co-Operative and Category Sponsors Fullers, New Forest Hotels and New Forest Marque.
