Get Vocal About Local Burton

HundrPeople's Business Awardseds of businesses and shoppers have been sharing what they love about Burton businesses on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag  #GetvocalaboutlocalBurton and #Burton.

As part of the campaign we ran The People's Business Award to give people a chance to nominate their favourite local businesses and tell us why they should win the award.

It was an extremely tough process but our panel of judges carefully considered the hundreds of nominations and reasons that were sent in and decided on the following award winners.Burton Small Business

Winner - Calm Yoga Studio

What you said;

"Vanessa and Blair and their team really do go the extra mile to provide a lovely, welcoming space to enjoy yoga. A calm and beautiful venue where people really feel valued, as shown by lots of lovely 'extras', eg rewards, opening party, complementary drinks, special Christmas session etc."

"This new yoga studio is a haven within Burton. You are made to feel welcome in their beautiful studio which offers yoga classes of all types to suit all and all offered in a modern but sympathetically restored building. It's a draw to the town and shows signs if regeneration. I haven't been into Burton for many years but made a special journey to visit this studio then decided to explore the high street. I think this studio is an asset to the local area."

Highly Commended - The Hideaway

What you said;

"The Hideaway is a family run business which took a run down cafe and turned it into a high quality coffee shop which dedicates itself to fantastic customer service, delicious food and drinks. The friendliness of the business makes you feel like one of the family and the low prices for excellent options keeps you coming back for more. The Hideaway is an exceptional local business in Burton-upon-Trent and their dedication to excellent business deserves this recognition!"

Highly Commended - Summerhouse Bakery

What you said;

"This cafe has brought some much needed life to the Market Hall. The food is of excellent quality and the price is fair. The staff work very hard and are always friendly. I have been going to eat here since it opened and watched it expand. I think it has also helped other businesses in the Market as the customers visit the other retailers too."

Community Award - Alexander Accountancy

What you said;

"A local company who offer excellent customer service to their clients, as well as organising fundraising events for local charities. Personally, they have helped my business grow and go beyond the normal practices associated with an accountant. If you need advice David and Wayne are always available to answer any queries you have. They genuinely care about Burton, the community and local business. The additional activities they organise locally I believe proves this. E.g. Offering free business reviews, you don’t have to be their client. During 2016/17 they sponsored free business workshops, again, no need to be their client. As well as being instrumental in raising close to £8,000 for local charities."
