Following the recent news that the Bay area of North Lancashire & South Cumbria is soon to have it's very own dedicated lifestyle magazine, 'Bay Living', the team behind the project have now announced the 'Bay Living' Awards.
The major awards evening will take place on September 7th at Lancaster University's Great Hall. Associate partners and category sponsors are now being finalised for the 24 categories being celebrated. A call for actual entries from local businesses is being made in May.
The Bay Living Awards will showcase the very best that businesses across The Bay have to offer Bay Living readers and Bay Radio listeners. Hosted by The Bay Radio's breakfast presenter, Danny Matthews, 350 guests will be in attendance for what is sure to become the area's biggest and best awards night with live coverage throughout.
Managing director of The Bay Radio Station, Bill Johnston, said: "The Bay Living Awards are here to recognise and applaud those stand out businesses across North Lancashire and South Cumbria who are the very best in their field.
"This is a great opportunity for organisations locally to position themselves at the heart of the community, inspire their workforce, promote their values and civic identity and raise their brand and profile with our readers and listeners all at the same time."
