Nominations are now closed. Make sure you check back here after the ceremony to find out who won what! In the meantime, details of all thirteen categories can be found below.
Best Business – with Worthing Town Centre Initiative
Do you know of a local business that’s flourishing? We’re looking for a local success story; a company that’s made gains in turnover, demonstrated great service and done an exceptional job of standing out from the crowd.
Best Eatery – with Kendricks Coffee
We want you to recommend an establishment where the food is excellent, and the welcome is even better. Whether it’s a delicious bar snack at your local, or the most lavish fine dining experience, we want to hear about the place that keeps you coming back for more.
Best New Business – with Arrow Taxis
If you know of a company that’s been running for 18 months or less, and has shown outstanding potential and drive, or demonstrated excellent customer service, we want to hear about them.
Charity Of The Year – with Ian Hart Funeral Services
We’re looking to recognise a local charity that’s worked hard to raise funds and awareness and who have had a real positive impact on the people and community they serve.
Chris Copsey Gold Award – with Wall Bros Carpets
We’re looking for a group or individual who’s made a significant contribution to the community. Maybe they’ve campaigned for something we can all benefit from, improved the local area or made our community a safer place.
Courage Award – with One Answer Insurance
The Courage Award looks to celebrate someone whose bravery has been tested, but who has remained resolute, even in the face of the most frightening or desperate circumstances.
Emergency Services Award – with Freestyle Kitchens and Bedrooms
Every day, an army of unsung heroes quietly go about their duties, keeping us safe and saving lives. This award is to recognise a member (or members) of the police, fire, ambulance or coastguard, whether paid or a volunteer, who’ve gone above and beyond the call of duty to help others.
Fundraiser of the Year – with Bartholomew Estate Agents
This award recognises someone who raises funds for one or more of the amazing charities we have in our community. It’s not necessarily the person who has raised the most amount of money, maybe someone who really gives their time, heart and soul to charitable endeavours.
Lifetime Achievement – with JSPC Computer Services
We want to recognise a local person whose life story is an inspiration to others. Someone who’s shown years of dedication to help others in the local community, or someone who’s overcome extraordinary odds to achieve success.
Parent In A Million – with W Welch Estate Agents
We’re looking to recognise a special parent who’s love and commitment to their family knows no bounds, no matter what the circumstance. Don’t leave it to the kids to nominate – maybe it’s your spouse or friend that deserves this award?
Sporting Excellence – with Yeomans Toyota
We want to recognise a local individual or team who’ve excelled in their chosen sport over the last twelve months. It’s not necessarily about how many trophies are in the cabinet; skill, determination and teamwork are just as important.
Top Teacher – with Worthing Pier’s Southern Pavilion
This is your chance to nominate the teacher, head teacher or teaching assistant who you think deserves ‘gold star’ recognition. We’re looking for someone whose true talent and passion lies in teaching and inspiring young people.
Young Person of the Year – with the Regnante School of Performing Arts
We’re looking for a young person, under 18, who deserves special recognition. Whether they’ve had to overcome illness, disability or tough personal circumstances, or someone who has achieved something significant academically or through a talent.
