Entries Officially open for the 2017 DN21 Awards

31 March 2017

Gainsborough Trinity Football Club and Marshall’s Yard have teamed up once again to stage the popular business awards for the third year, focused on rewarding the best in business right in the heart of Gainsborough.

The DN21 Awards, now in their third year, have been organised to recognise some of the fantastic companies in the town, delivering great products and service in retail and other business sectors in the DN21 postcode area.

The awards are free to enter and businesses can either put themselves forward or nominate a business or individual by completing a simple short form. Entries opened on the 31st March and the closing date is the 4th May with the winners announced in a glittering ceremony held once again at the Blues Club on Thursday 1st June.

Centre Manager for Marshall’s Yard, Alison Hall, said: “We had a fantastic response from businesses for last years’ awards and had a really enjoyable night. The DN21 awards are all about keeping things local from rewarding businesses with high turnover and employment numbers to sole traders offering something niche in their market. Most of all it’s about celebrating the overall offer Gainsborough has and a chance to come together for a great evening.”

Chairman of Gainsborough Trinity Football, Richard Kane, said: “The Football Club has worked hard to integrate in to the town and become an integral part of the local community. By working with businesses and other organisations the town is improving and with the ‘in it together’ attitude Gainsborough is becoming a place that Trinity fans can be truly proud of.” 

There are ten awards categories open to both retail and non-retail businesses and sponsors have been secured for all awards with still three months to go until the event.
