Praise for the town's shops, businesses and market traders

Over recent weeks a group of Civic Society members has been judging shops, businesses, places selling food and drink and the stalls on the Six Day Market and have come up with a short list of finalists in four categories. These establishments are being informed of their success and will have a vinyl sticker to display showing that they are one of the finalists.

An awards ceremony will be held in the Town Hall on Tuesday 28 May when trophies will be presented to the winners.  In addition, there will be two special prizes which will be announced on the evening.

Hugh Sturzaker, Chair of the Civic Society, said that "judging has not been easy with over 400 premises to judge as well as the six day market stalls.   However, we are keen to reward those places which take a pride in their businesses and hope that this will encourage others to smarten up the appearance of their premises and the area in front of them.  Apart from the window display we were not judging the inside of the shops and businesses nor their service.

"We are very grateful to sponsorship from the Town Centre Partnership, Great Yarmouth Borough Council, TMS Media, SPP digital, ATEC Design and Imaging and Dr. Ajay Kumar."
