Mayor encourages public to vote as city is shortlisted for business award
01 April 2022
Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Alderman Graham Warke, has encouraged members of the public to get their online votes in after the City was named as a finalist in a competition of best UK locations for business.
The UK's Top Towns for Business competition is being run by Enterprise Nation, the small business network and business support provider, in partnership with Dell UK and aims to shine a spotlight on the UK's towns and cities that successfully nurture entrepreneurial spirit in order to make a lasting impact on local communities and the economy.
Locations across the UK are judged on a variety of different business-related sectors including connectivity, dedicated space, retail space, networks and leadership, and Derry is amongst the nominees which are now being put out to a public vote.
Mayor Warke said it was fantastic to be amongst the locations shortlisted and asked everyone to get their votes in.
"We are absolutely delighted to be recognised in this way as part of the UK's Top Towns for Business and it would be even better news now if we could make that final step and take the top spot. This is a great opportunity to receive national recognition for our City and District, and for the fantastic work that is being done to support businesses and entrepreneurship by all involved.
"The voting is open until April 17th so I would appeal to everyone to take 30 seconds out to log on to the website and get your vote in!"
Everyone who places a vote will be entered into a prize draw to win a £200 Not on The High Street voucher.
