THE DEADLINE to nominate businesses for a special community award is now looming closer.

Created by the High Sheriff of Cumbria, Julie Barton, the High Sheriff of Cumbria Covid-19 Business Innovation and Community Awards will recognise the incredible ways businesses across Cumbria have confronted the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic since last March.

Any eligible Cumbrian business of any size can apply for an award, or anyone can nominate a business that they feel deserves recognition for the work that they do.

Certificates will be awarded to all businesses that the judges feel meet their criteria of special performance.

The window for making nominations closes tomorrow.
