Welcome to The Broads Awards

Each year Broads based businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk are nominated to receive an award for being the best in Broadland. Nominations start around Easter, voting takes place towards the end of September and the Red Carpet Ceremony is held at the end of October.


Why The Awards?

The Broads Awards were the brainchild of NBN member "Dave Hurst (Richgrafix)" and taken on by Sue and Pete.The Idea was to create an award to recognise the contribution that businesses make in the Broadland area. Without a lot of these businesses the area would soon lose some of it's attraction as one of the best kept secret holiday destinations in the UK .

The awards are here to help promote those businesses that provide consistent good service and the awards are displayed with great pride by the recipients.

Voting for the inaugural awards in 2008 was conducted by members of The NBN forum. In 2009 TheNorfolkBroads.org (NBO) took the helm and now organise the nominations, voting and awards ceremony.

2015 saw the inclusion of nearly 6,000 votes from Facebook users and the top three business's put forward for voting.

 NBO members then cast their vote for the final winner, simple as that really!
