●● POYN­TON Town Coun­cil is join­ing forces with Poyn­ton In Busi­ness in the hunt to find the best firms and em­ploy­ees in Poyn­ton.

The PACE Awards are now in their third year and celebrate all Poyn­ton busi­nesses, shops and restau­rants.

They are voted for by res­i­dents. This year, as an in­cen­tive to vote, Poyn­ton Town Coun­cil is of­fer­ing all vot­ers the chance to win £50 or £100 in shop­ping vouch­ers which can be spent lo­cally. There will also be a prize of £75 of vouch­ers for the per­son named Poyn­ton Em­ployee of the Year.

Nom­i­na­tion forms are avail­able from Poyn­ton Civic Hall or the Poyn­ton in Busi­ness web­site.

The clos­ing date for nom­i­na­tions is Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 9.

The awards will be pre­sented at the Poyn­ton In Busi­ness an­nual din­ner at Davenport Golf Club on Fri­day, Novem­ber 20. ●● AN ap­peal has been launched to boost the num­ber of bed and break­fasts in Poyn­ton.

Poyn­ton Town Coun­cil is en­cour­ag­ing any­one with a spare room to check out the web­site visiteng­ which gives prac­ti­cal in­for­ma­tion on where to get help when start­ing up, se­cur­ing fund­ing, how to hire staff, take card pay­ments, and un­der­stand­ing le­gal obli­ga­tions.

A spokesman for the coun­cil said: “There is a dearth of bed and break­fast ac­com­mo­da­tion in Poyn­ton or in­deed in the im­me­di­ate sur­round­ing area.

“This could rep­re­sent a busi­ness op­por­tu­nity for some­one with one or more spare rooms, who is able to be­come suit­ably reg­is­tered, thereby fill­ing a gap in the mar­ket and help­ing to pro­mote Poyn­ton’s visi­tor econ­omy.” ●● GROUPS are be­ing of­fered to hire the Town Coun­cil’s eight-seater minibus. Call John Lav­er­ick on 01625 872238, or email him via comm­trans@ poyn­ton­town­coun­cil.
