Poynton Mayor, Cllr Mrs Rebecca Horsman-Johnson visited the Poynton In Business stand at the Poynton Show recently to help launch the 2015 Poynton Achievements in Customer Excellence (P.A.C.E.) Awards. The P.A.C.E. Awards are sponsored by Poynton Town Council and aim to find the best businesses and employees in Poynton. The Awards are now in their third year and are the only truly local business awards whereby customers get to vote for their favourite businesses and staff members.

The award categories cover all Poynton business from shops and restaurants to professionals and business services etc. so they are just as relevant to business users as they are to shoppers.

As an incentive to take part, the Town Council is offering all voters the chance to win either £100 or £50 worth of local shopping vouchers. There will also be a prize of £75 of vouchers for the exceptional person to be voted the Poynton Employee of the Year.

Previous winners have been delighted with the publicity they have received through local press and on-line, but the awards also highlight the fantastic customer service levels right across the village.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 9th October 2015 and the Awards will to be presented at the Poynton In Business Annual Dinner to be held on Friday 20th November 2015 at Davenport Golf Club.

Nomination forms are available from Poynton Civic Hall and at various businesses around the village. However, the easiest and fastest way to vote is at the Poynton In Business website.
