Coun Denise Jeffery, Wakefield Council’s cabinet member for economic growth and regeneration said the awards were a great platform for business of all sizes to tell the world about the great work they do for the city.

“It will showcase the crème de la crème of business whose stories can easily become the catalyst to ignite creative thoughts in others,” she said.

And two-time winner of the our Independent Business Award Dave Jones, who owns Bier Huis in Ossett, said his gongs were a “seal of quality” and “a bit of recognition for all the hard work” he and his staff do.

There’s just three weeks left to get your nomination in.

BBC Look North presenter Harry Gration will host the awards ceremony, which will be held at the Cedar Court Hotel, Denby Dale Road, on Thursday, September 26.
