Annie Lorys, President of the Newhaven Chamber of Commerce said: ‘This has been another successful year for the Seahaven Business Awards. The standard of the nominations goes up every year and this gives the judges a very tough job when it comes to selecting the finalists and then the winners. Our congratulations to all the finalists and winners, but I would like to say to the businesses that weren’t placed this year – please don’t be disheartened - please enter again next year.

On behalf of Newhaven Chamber I would like to say a really big thank you to all our sponsors- in particular our two key sponsors Veolia and Wave Leisure. In addition - Cooperative Funeralcare, Fundraising Auctions, Elite Industries, Newhaven Enterprise Centre, HM Bookkeeping, Mike Shorer Fine Jewellery, Newhaven Town Council, and Seahaven FM and and the 7 sponsors of the Awards, without whom this event would not be possible. We are now looking forward to the Seahaven Business Awards 2017!
