Havering Small Business Awards is a community-led event giving residents the chance to show some love for the small and independent businesses across the borough that continue to serve their communities.
The awards, which are run by Havering Council, are split into ten categories representing the wide range of small businesses in Havering.
These categories are:
- Best Small or Independent Business

- Best Take Away
- Best Hospitality Business
- Best Tradesperson
- Best Customer Experience
- Best Shopfront
- Best Social Enterprise or CIC
- Best Newcomer (less than a year old)
- The Havering Small Business of the Year Award
The first nine categories are open to nominations from all residents, with the final award, the ‘Havering Small Business of the Year’ chosen from the winners of the other awards by a panel of Council officers and sponsors.
Nominations will close at 5pm on Monday 27 February 2023 and can be made through the Havering Council website havering.gov.uk/smallbusinessawards .
