Back for their 4th year The Mum’s guide to Harpenden Awards launch this week.  They aim to recognising the local people, businesses and organisations that help make Harpenden and the surrounding area such a great place for families.
The 2015 awards were a huge success, with over 1500 local parents taking part in the final voting, and we hope that 2016 will be even bigger!  From this Monday 16th May you can nominate a Harpenden or local to Harpenden business in one of our 9 categories.  Owners or employees cannot nominate their own business but you can download and display a poster to encourage your customers and clients to nominate you.

The categories include:
Best Activity Class or Group for under 5’s.
Best Activity Class or Group for School-age Children
Best Holiday Club or Class
Best Pre/Post-natal Support Service
Best Lifestyle Service for Parents
Best Party and Celebrations Provider
Most Family-friendly Café/Restaurant
Best Local Shop
Best Local Event
The businesses with the most nominations will make the shortlist for the final voting round. Nominations close at midnight on Sunday 5th June. The final voting round will open on Saturday 11th June at our stand at Harpenden Carnival and on the website.  Full terms and conditions for the 2016 Awards nominations and voting are available here.
What a brilliant way to celebrate living in or around Harpenden and encourage our local businesses to be really family friendly so the whole community can enjoy living in this great part of Hertfordshire.
