We have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Merton Best Business Awards. - On 22nd May 2020 the Merton Chamber Board of Directors, in consultation with all of our Award sponsors, made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Merton Best Business Awards. The Awards will return in March 2021 to celebrate everything that is good about business in Merton. - Diana Sterck, CEO of Merton Chamber of Commerce, explains the decision “Cancelling the Awards this year is a big disappointment to us and our sponsors and I know for all potential business applicants. The decision was not taken likely and we have held off making it for as long as we could. We launched the Awards two days before we went into Lockdown in March 2020 and were always hopeful that the country would recover much more quickly from the COVID-19 pandemic than has been the case. We want the Awards to be relevant, timely and appropriate for all business sectors and, because of the pandemic and the challenges faced by many sectors, we have made the decision that our energies need to go into supporting business as we come out of Lockdown and into recovery”.

Great meeting at the All England Lawn & Tennis Club recently to put plans in place for our Gala evening in September. Yes, we're starting early...preparation is key! We loved this living wall on their grounds, great to see they are doing their part in supporting #climatechange 🌳
