Voting for the Citizen and the newly created Business of the Year awards will open on March 1 ahead of the annual parish meeting on April 23, in The Institute.

The town council will release nomination forms in due course, officials said.

These forms should be returned to the town council’s offices in Broad Street before Friday, April 12.
