2017 Award Winners

The 2nd year for the Deepings Business Awards, organised by Deepings Business Club proved to be an even bigger success that 2016 with over 5000 votes cast!


The Awards are a celebration of everything that’s good about the Deepings. A chance for the community to honour its favourite businesses.


There were 14 awards presented on the night – 11 Nominated and voted for by the residents of the Deepings, making the Deepings Awards the most democratic business awards locally.


Cloudnine did really well for the 2nd year running winning two awards – Retailer of the Year and Business of the Year and Murano Silver took home the Chairman’s award in recognition of 2 very close 2nd places in consecutive years.


Ron Branch of Branch Brothers was awarded a lifetime achievement award to commemorate his 50 years in business serving the local community.


The event was a complete sell-out with 170 people attending the black tie event which was held at the Deepings School.

The ticket fees were used to cover the cost of the event including room hire, room dressing, entertainment, food, the wonderful engraved glass awards and miscellaneous costs. It it intended to use any funds that are surplus towards a "bursary" for a young entrepreneur / start up business early in 2018 - watch this space for further details.


The Awards seem to be well established now and plans are already being considered for the 2018 contest.

Put the date in your diary now - Saturday 29th September 2018!

The event does take a lot of organising and is all done by volunteers, we recognise that there may be room for improvement in some aspects and encourage people to put forward suggestions or offer to join the club and help.
