Don’t miss out on a Selsey Business Awards

VOLUNTEERS, hairdressers and other Selsey businesses are urged not to miss out on the seaside town’s awards this year.

The Selsey Business Partnership has said this year has seen a record number of nominations, with 140 entries received so far.

But the partnership, and sponsors Recenseo and Oceanair are calling for even more entries.

Of the 140 entries 30 different businesses have been nominated across the ten categories. But more nominations are needed for the Best Volunteer of the Year, Best Voluntary Group of the Year, Best Accommodation Provider and Hair, Beauty Therapist and Healthcare categories.

Roger Barrow, chairman of Selsey Business Partnership, said: “We’re surprised we’ve not had more entries for these categories as we have an impressive number of hair and beauty businesses, guest houses and bed and breakfasts in Selsey; some of which are better than others!

“We also know there are a substantial number of voluntary organisations in Selsey that wouldn’t exist, if it weren’t for their volunteers, so we want to hear from more of them too. We’re really pleased with the number of nominations so far this year, but there is room for more!”

The closing date for entries is November 23, and companies can be nominated online at

The Gala Dinner is being held on January 10, 2014, where the winners will be announced.
