Do you know an individual, group of people, charity or organisation who deserves recognition for the great things they do to make the Ashton community amazing? Ladysmith Shopping Centre wants to hear from you!

Ladysmith is proud to present the Amazing Ashton Awards 2022, which encourages people within the community and businesses alike to celebrate the town’s heroes by identifying the efforts of local people and the fantastic work they do – as well as raising money in support of the centre’s Charity of the Year, The A Word.

The nominations are now open for the award categories which cover every aspect of community life and recognise the enormous contribution made by people and projects which deserve to receive that special acknowledgement.

The categories include: Charity Fundraiser of the Year, Retailer of the Year, Independent Retailer, Young Achiever of the Year, Employee of the Year and Best Customer Service.

The judging panel, which is yet to be revealed, will have the impossible task of choosing the winners and these will be announced at a glamorous gala event in November.
