The winners of the nine categories will be announced at a dinner at the Spa next Friday night.

Members of the public were asked to make nominations for the people, groups and businesses which deserved recognition for making the town a better place.

Carl Brown, Promenades Shopping Centre manager, said: “It’s been wonderful to see so many fantastic achievements from people in the community that have been recognised over the last few years.”
