A new award recognising Ottery businesses for their involvement within the community has been announced.
Businesses that go the extra mile will be in contention for the first ever Business of the Year award this year, alongside the town’s annual Citizen of the Year accolade.
Ottery Town Council voted unanimously to create a separate award last Monday.
Councillor Roger Giles said: “As far as I’m concerned, it is a good thing to do.
“We should have a citizen of the year and a business of the year.

“I can’t see any disadvantage in that.”
Deputy Mayor Cllr Paul Carter added: “There are many outstanding businesses in the town.”
