Celebrating Excellence at the 2024 Bexleyheath High Street Awards

The eagerly awaited Bexleyheath High Street Awards marked its third annual celebration, once again recognising the exceptional achievements of local businesses amid unprecedented challenges.

Since their inception in 2022, the awards have symbolised resilience and distinction, celebrating the unwavering commitment of business owners and innovators at the forefront of the local economic landscape.

Over the past year, high street businesses have navigated through a myriad of challenges, including heightened operational costs and evolving consumer demands. Despite these adversities, Bexleyheath’s businesses have demonstrated remarkable perseverance and ingenuity, innovating in customer engagement and excellence in service and product offerings.

The awards ceremony this year aimed to honour these commendable efforts, with accolades ranging from “Best Customer Service” to the prestigious “Bexleyheath’s Business of the Year.” This year also saw the introduction of four Bexley Business Awards, broadening participation from the wider Bexleyheath area.

“We’re thrilled to be back for a third year to celebrate the hard work and amazing resilience of the businesses on the Broadway and throughout Bexley Borough. We wanted to include more businesses and build on our already thriving business community and are so pleased to have so many different businesses involved. These awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of Bexley’s top businesses, and we’re excited to celebrate their achievements,” expressed Caron Linyard, Bexleyheath BID & Town Centre Manager.

Ammo, representing event sponsor Bexley Homes, commented, “We are honoured to be able to support the Business Awards; being a life-long resident of the Borough, connecting with fellow business-borough members, many of whom support our local community, really shines a positive light on all that we are doing, and this event brings this all to the forefront. We continue our mission on providing excellent property management services and supporting our housed families.”
