Local business award nominations are sought

NOMINATIONS are being invited for the annual Eastern Borders Development Association (EBDA) Award.

Last year’s award was made to the Barn at Beal, but also shortlisted were a number of other local businesses, voluntary organisations and individuals from across the area.

Chairman of the trustees, James Evans, said: “Nominations are invited from organisations and individuals in the award area for the 2011 award.

“It will be made to a person or an organisation who, or which, through skill or effort, has made an outstanding contribution in social, economic or environmental fields in the 12 months leading up to November 30, 2011.”

The EBDA Award was instituted in 1977 and celebrates innovation, skill and enterprise within north Northumberland and the eastern Borders, the area the association promoted effectively during the 1960s and 1970s.
