The People's Business Award
We all know that shop, restaurant or retailer in Burton that we love.
Perhaps you love it because you always get great customer service and/or a great deal. It could be a place that prides itself on supporting the local community - whether that’s by supporting charities and good causes or just helping local people out in some way. It could even be a business that has stood the test of time and been in Burton for as long as you can remember.
