MyFolkestone Support Folkestone Town Team's Independent Business Awards

MyFolkestone, a free and easy to use digital platform designed to support local businesses, help residents make the most of their town and showcase the very best of Folkestone to visitors and tourists, is delighted to support Folkestone Town’s annual business awards in 2019, in celebration of its recent arrival in Folkestone in September 2019.

Folkestone has some fantastic independent businesses doing some great things that the Folkestone Town Team believe deserve recognition. In December 2018 a number of businesses were rewarded through the first Town Team Awards programme, with categories ranging from customer service to website to décor and displays.  Amongst the winners were A Simmonds, Crosskeys Travel, Wild for Flowers, Anna’s Tea Room and Landau.
Winning businesses were thrilled to receive the recognition of their commitment to their own unique businesses with certificates presented by Folkestone Mayor, Cllr Ann Berry.

The project team have now commenced the process for the 2019 Awards and are confirming categories and calling for nominations from Town Team Members. A new Category for a ‘Green Business’ has also been included and shortlisting will take place soon and voting will be completed at the end of September in readiness for the Town Team Awards Dinner on 7th November at the Burlington Hotel.

MyFolkestone is delighted to support the 2019 awards by showcasing the winners on its website ( as part of its engagement with local businesses within Folkestone.  MyFolkestone curates the best content of what is happening in town, including local events, festivals as well as providing exclusive offers and discounts, resulting in first-rate customer experiences across the town and helping local businesses build their profile with these audiences. 

The Categories ensure the many businesses that make up a town can be included. Winners and Runners up will receive a certificate, and the Town Team and are calling for fellow business to add to a package of benefits that can help support fellow businesses.
