The Newhaven Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the launch of 16th Annual Seahaven Business Awards. The 2019 awards are open for nominations from Monday 4th February and recognise businesses which have shown tremendous commitment, innovation and inspiration to all around them.

Newhaven Chamber of Commerce President Mike Shorer said: ‘Last year’s event was incredibly successful but 2019 is promising to be even better. Many thanks to key sponsors Veolia and Elite Industries; the Newhaven Enterprise Centre, CleanKill and HM Bookkeeping; Arlettes Florists, Excell Design & Marketing and Fine Marketing. Without support from our sponsors, we would be unable to organise this annual event. We will be welcoming a representative from the Lord Lieutenant’s office and also expect the Vietnamese Ambassador to the UK at our Grand Gala Awards Dinner on 10th May at Jerrom Hall, Peacehaven.’
