Voting opens for Orpington’s Finest Awards 2017

Local MP, Jo Johnson, is encouraging people to vote in the Orpington’s Finest Awards 2017.

Organised by Orpington 1st and News Shopper, the annual awards celebrate the very best of Orpington’s growing business community. They also give people the chance to support their favourite local cafes, shops and restaurants, and the staff who work there.

Voting for the categories of ‘Favourite Business’ and ‘Best Employee’ in Orpington is now open, with more information about how to submit your nomination available on the Orpington 1st website, here.

Votes must be submitted to Orpington 1st by 24 February 2017. The winners will be announced at the Gala Awards Evening taking place on Thursday 2 March at the ODEON Cinema.

As an added incentive, everyone who votes will also be entered into a prize draw for £100 cash. The winner of the draw will be contacted during the week commencing 6 March.

Jo said: ‘The Orpington’s Finest Awards are a fantastic showcase for the town centre’s growing number of businesses and their staff who deserve special recognition.

I know that the competition is tougher this year than ever before, a sign of the great strides Orpington has made over the past twelve months. I would urge everybody to vote so as to help raise the local profile of their favourite establishment.’
