Winners of the Somerset Day 2022 Business Competition 

We teamed up with Somerset County Council to offer worthy Somerset-based businesses the chance to win a £1000 grant to support growth.

With so many amazing businesses in Somerset, we were keen to support independent businesses who could demonstrate how £1000 would be invested to help their business grow and make an impact on their local communities.

We received many excellent entries and the judges faced a daunting task choosing which deserved to be chosen to receive the three grants – indeed so challenging was the task that the judges took the decision to share one of the grants between two businesses.

The two businesses each winning £1,000 were Yellow Door Cottage, Stogursey and Rocket and Bird in Taunton.

Sharing the third £1,000 grant with each receiving £500 were Lesser Litter in Taunton and Langport Vintage Market.
