Nominations for the above are open from today for the awards that will be held on the 13th October. The BID are once again delighted to be sponsoring the Customer Service award.

I would though encourage you all to click on this link Bury Business Awards 2023 – Enter Now! – Bury Free Press ( to see which categories you think might be appropriate for your business and/or an employee(s) and you can either nominate yourself or one of your customers can.

If shortlisted for an award there are considerable promotional benefits available to you, as the event is organised by our local weekly paper, who also have a considerable digital presence.

Best of luck!

  • Our new website

Our plans are progressing well for our new website to go live before the end of the month. Next week I will be in touch about how you can access and amend your business listing and also add details of any jobs, events or offers you wish the public to be aware of.

I will circulate a single subject email explaining all you have to do and how you can discover how you can update the issues I mention above.

Believe me it is pretty straightforward as even I could do this!

Have a great weekend
