The winner of the Pride of Wellingborough Awards 2017 is Laser Maze, followed by Lunar Tree and Omnia as runners-up. 

 

The winner was announced at the Christmas Lights Switch-on on Saturday, November 25th.

Each fortnight, a short review of a shop, pub and restaurant, health and beauty salon or professional services businesses was published on the Discover Wellingborough website, throughout the year, and promoted on its Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Members of the public were encouraged to give the business a star rating for each of the categories, including customer service, atmosphere, quality of offering and overall.

John Cable, BID Manager, said: “This is about showcasing the best of our great town centre, reminding people about all of the businesses we have on our doorstep.

“This goes to show that there’s more to Wellingborough than meets the eye – and that’s what we are trying to demonstrate with the Pride of Wellingborough awards.

“There are some fabulous, quirky and unique goods on sale, tasty places to eat and drink in our town centre and we feel it’s time to start celebrating them. We must also remember the major advantage of free parking we have in the town centre as well.”

The reviews were successfully introduced in summer 2013 as a way of promoting independent town centre businesses.

The top five businesses in 2017 were: Laser Maze, Lunar Tree, Omnia gift shop, Sun Angels and The Sweet Jar
