Shortlist announced for the first Fox Valley Awards

15 February 2018

The judges for the Fox Valley Awards have announced the shortlist of hopefuls as the centre prepares for its own very special awards ceremony on Wednesday March 7th.

The event, sponsored Burrows Motor Company is being staged for the first time and will be held at the centre’s Ponti’s Italian Kitchen restaurant when the winners in eight categories will be revealed.

Over the last few weeks businesses based at Fox Valley in north Sheffield have been busy nominating themselves and their colleagues for a range of awards aimed at rewarding and recognising great service and good practice.

Independent judges with retail, customer service marketing and social media credentials have worked through more than 100 applications across the various categories.

Centre manager at Fox valley, Annabel Plumtree said: “This is the first time we have staged the awards and the response from our retailers has been fantastic. We know we have some great teams and individuals here at Fox Valley and it is great to be able to recognise some of them in these awards.

“We’d like to congratulate everyone who is shortlisted and look forward to announcing the winners at the event in March. We would also like to say a huge thank you to our main sponsor Burrows Motor Company and to all our category sponsors who have helped make the event possible.”

Shoppers can still take part in the Retailer of the Year Award, sponsored by GDA Creative Marketing and vote for their favourite on line at until March 5th and a special Young Achiever Award sponsored by Stocksbridge Town Council will also be awarded on the evening.
