Businesses across the district and beyond now have little more than a week left to enter the Harrogate Advertiser Business Awards.

The deadline for entries will fall a week on Monday – on March 13.

Jean MacQuarrie, editor of the Harrogate Advertiser series, said: “The entry phase has really gone by so quickly, but there’s still time to enter.

“The black-tie awards ceremony on Thursday, April 27 will be held at the Royal Hall for the first time ever, so it’s sure to feel very special. I’d urge businesses to enter now – while they still can – to avoid missing out on the recognition they deserve.”

The main sponsor of the awards, which showcase the best of the business community across the circulation areas of the Harrogate Advertiser Series, is Harrogate and Pateley Bridge estate agent Verity Frearson.

Individual category sponsors include Harrogate Borough Council, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society and Harrogate District Chamber of Commerce.
