The winners of the 2022 Reigate & Banstead Business Awards were announced on Tuesday night (22 March) in a prestigious ceremony at Reigate Manor.
Ten of the Borough’s businesses received an accolade, with a wide range of categories open for entries. Gadget Show presenter, Ortis Deley, hosted the evening, with Morr & Co Solicitors supporting the event as headline sponsor.
The awards, organised by the Economic Prosperity Team at Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, were created to recognise and celebrate the many brilliant businesses that call our borough home.
Categories for this year’s awards included the High Street Hero Award, which saw its finalists nominated by the public, and a new Resilient Business of the Year Award recognising the hard work of businesses during the pandemic.
The awards received over 100 high-quality entries, from large international businesses to small start-ups.
Councillor Eddy Humphreys, Executive Member for Economic Prosperity at Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, said: “Each and every one of the businesses in our Borough makes a valuable contribution to our local area and its economy.
“We were proud to be able to honour some of those businesses with an award. Congratulations to all of the winners. We’re looking forward to running the awards again and hope even more Reigate & Banstead businesses will apply.”
Paul Harvey, Managing Partner at headline sponsor, Morr & Co Solicitors, said: “We were delighted to be headline sponsor for these awards.
“Recognising and celebrating the best businesses and their achievement is important, particularly given the additional challenges businesses have faced since the beginning of 2020.”
Frank Sinclair, owner of Fit With Frank, said: “I love coming to the awards here because I get to see all these businesses that I watch from afar in the local area – it’s a great place to meet everybody.
"Of course, being recognised for doing some good work in the community is great for me and great for other businesses, it’s a great place to be.”

All proceeds from the awards ceremony will go to two fantastic local charities, Age Concern Banstead and YMCA East Surrey.
