Nominations top 100, with more than 500 votes cast.

More than 500 people have voted in the Seaton Business Awards.

Voting has now closed and results will be announced on Friday next week.

Nominations praised no fewer than 100 independent businesses in the resort.

“The response has been amazing,” said Heidi Hallam, Seaton’s business development manager. “We have had over 500 members of the public voting in the awards and for a wide variety of different businesses.

“Some of the businesses nominated in the first few days were: Food of Joy café, The End Bookshop, Just Flowers, Planters Tea Rooms and Milford and Dormor Solicitors.

“The response has been brilliant; the public wants to support local businesses and are keen to tell us about when they get great service.”

Heidi added: “Many local businesses got behind the awards and encouraged their customers to get involved,

“I would like to thank them for supporting this initiative.

“I also want to thank those businesses who kindly provided the prizes for the awards.”

The two award winners will also each receive a marketing package to help their business.

The package will include a free advert in the Midweek Herald, social media consultancy from Cosmic (a half day), a marketing banner provided by Signs South West and a year’s membership to Seaton and District Chamber of Commerce.

The competition was staged by the chamber of commerce in association with the Midweek Herald.
