Mayor's Business Awards in Association with Lynn News

Twenty-four years ago the Mayor’s Awards for Outstanding Business Achievement were launched by former Mayor the late Les Daubney.

They have been ever present on the Lynn and West Norfolk calendar ever since, but this year, in association with the Lynn News, they have been developed to incorporate a whole host of new categories.

The ambition is to reward business enterprise, skill and endeavour across the whole range. This will extend from the shop assistant and waitress who wear a smile on their face while they go about their work to the company capable of lifting the prestigious Mayor’s Award for Outstanding Business Achievement.
