Awards to put best businesses and community heroes in spotlight


The best businesses and most admired community heroes in Lichfield district will be honoured at this year’s Beacon Awards in October.

This prestigious community and business event, organised by Lichfield District Council, is a great opportunity to shine a well-deserved spotlight on the businesses and individuals who go the extra mile for the benefit of the district’s residents.

The inaugural Beacon Awards was held last year culminating in a glittering gala evening at the National Memorial Arboretum. Preparations have already begun for this year’s awards on Thursday 10 October, again at the NMA.

A spokesperson for Lichfield District Council said: “Lichfield District is home to many brilliant businesses and many selfless people who work tirelessly for our communities.

“We want to recognise their hard work and commitment and are very much looking forward to receiving award nominations from across the district and to the presentation later this year.” 

This year’s Beacon Awards will be honouring nominees in the following categories:

  • Start-up Business of the Year
  • Micro Business of the Year
  • Small Business of the Year
  • Large Business of the Year
  • Customer Service Award
  • Tourism Business of the Year
  • Hospitality Business of the Year
  • Commitment to the Environment Award
  • Apprentice/Young Businessperson of the Year
  • Employer of the Year
  • Lichfield District Council Recognition Award
  • Lichfield Shining Light – District Legacy Award
  • Community Hero
  • Charity or Social Enterprise of the Year
  • Inspirational Impact Award

Any business can nominate itself now in a maximum of two categories. We are also inviting nominations for your community heroes.

Nominees, finalists and winners will be promoted across the region before and after the awards event with the option to include the Beacon Award Winner logo on their promotional materials.

This is a high profile event which also offers the opportunity to raise a business’s profile across the district through sponsorship.
