Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

RES­I­DENTS of Poyn­ton and visi­tors are be­ing urged to help celebrate the best busi­nesses in the town.

The Poyn­ton Achieve­ments in Cus­tomer Ex­cel­lence (PACE) awards aims to re­ward staff as well as the busi­nesses.

Poyn­ton Mayor Re­becca Hors­man­John­son launched the awards at the Poyn­ton In Busi­ness stand at the Poyn­ton Show.

She said: “The awards are now in their third year and are the only truly lo­cal Poyn­ton busi­ness awards whereby cus­tomers get to vote for their favourite busi­nesses and staff mem­bers.

“The award cat­e­gories cover all Poyn­ton busi­ness from shops and restau­rants to pro­fes­sion­als and busi­ness ser­vices, so they are just as rel­e­vant to busi­ness users as they are to shop­pers.”

The clos­ing date for nom­i­na­tions is Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 9.

As an in­cen­tive to take part, the Town Coun­cil is of­fer­ing all vot­ers the chance to win £50 or £100 worth of lo­cal shop­ping vouch­ers.
