Sponsors Announced For Town Centre Business Awards

Watford BID Service Excellence Awards 2017

Watford BID is delighted to announce that the Watford Observer and Murrill Construction are headline sponsors for the Watford BID Service Excellence Awards.

The Awards, which will take place at Watford Colosseum on Tuesday 28th February 2017, aim to celebrate the businesses in the town centre that exemplify excellence in their approach to customer service.

There are sixteen awards categories covering the main business sectors operating in the town centre area, with an award for an individual who continually demonstrates excellent customer service.

Other organisations have been keen to back the BID awards. Environmental Services company Veolia is sponsoring the Community & Voluntary Services category award, in which the YMCA, Citizens Advice Bureau, Alternatives Watford Pregnancy Support and the Peace Hospice are finalists.

Watford Football Club is sponsoring the Leisure category award, where finalists Everyone Active Leisure Centre, Watford Colosseum, the Palace Theatre and The Langley Banqueting Suites are vying for the top spot. Local sign writers and manufacturers Fast Signs, located on St Albans Road, will present the award to either Proffitt & Holt or Elliott Lettings in the estate agency category.

In addition, Kier, the organisation currently working with Watford Borough Council to regenerate West Watford via the Health Campus scheme are sponsoring a prosecco drinks reception. While Booker Wholesale on Greycaine Industrial Estate will sponsor the café and coffee shop category, which sees Ocean Bells, Reasons Coffee Shop & Bookstore, Fresh Shop, Creams and Joe & The Juice competing against each other to win the award.

Kwame Tefe, Chair of Watford BID said: “Our sponsors are key to making this event a success and we truly value their support in what we intend to be the first of many BID Service Excellence Awards.”

Watford BID is also pleased to have the support of Watford Borough Council, who are carrying out licensing checks on all finalists in the bar, pub and club categories, as well as Herts Police and Watford’s elected mayor Dorothy Thornhill.

Further sponsorship opportunities exist for other businesses interested in getting involved. More information can be found on the website www.watfordbid.co.uk/excellence-awards.
