Seahaven Business Awards 2019

Nominations have now closed for the Seahaven Business Awards 2019

A massive thank you to all those who voted in this year’s Seahaven Business Awards, voting has now closed and the finalists will be announced on the 10th May 2019.

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.’
