Trafford Business and Community Awards Launched!

Do you know of a Trafford business or individual who has gone Above And Beyond during 2020?


Promoting Trafford are excited to bring to you the inaugural Trafford Business and Community Awards 2021! This is aimed at celebrating the local, independent and small businesses across Trafford, and to recognise local initiatives and community based projects and individuals that have made a difference to our communities.


This event has been created by us at Promoting Trafford, but grateful to also be sponsored by SUBS Business Events.


Now more than ever we need to recognise the efforts and dedication from individuals within our communities, and to celebrate some of our local businesses and organisations.


The categories are-

  • Startup business of the year (under 18 months old)
  • Franchise business
  • Community initiative
  • Professional services business
  • IT/ digital/ creative business
  • Family-friendly activity or project
  • Independent/ local charity
  • Individual star/ outstanding individual contribution to the community or business
  • Retail business
  • Night-time economy business
  • Health & Wellbeing business, activity or project
  • Overall Business of the Year


Follow the link below to place your nominations before the 31st January 2021. You can nominate yourself as well as others. You can only nominate ONE person or organisation per category, and you will only be able to submit your nominations once – so choose carefully.




If you don’t have a nominee for a particular category, please just put the word NONE and move on to the next.


We’ll be announcing in an online ceremony at the end of February, and although this will probably have to be virtual this year, we’d love to make this an annual event for the Trafford calendar.


We’ll be giving more details and teasers as we go along, and let’s get Trafford feeling positive and thankful as we start 2021.
