The finalists have been shortlisted from more than 150 entries to this year’s Merton Best Business Awards, organised by Merton Chamber of Commerce.

Judges made up of leading figures across the business community had a tough time narrowing down the finalists in what has been a record number of applications in the history of The Merton Best Business Awards – now in its seventh year. 

Finalists include Marjan Moosavi (pictured above) from Blue Wave Swim School, which has classes in Wimbledon, and Wimbledon-based Tricia Cusden from Look Fabulous Forever, in this year’s first-ever Top Woman in Business Award. 

Other Wimbledon finalists who have been shortlisted include The Hand & Racquet and All Bar One for Best Pub; Gina Conway Aveda Salon & Spa in Wimbledon for Best Service Excellence; Lu-Ma Cafe and Skyline Whitespace for Positive Workplace; PR and marketing agency, Taylor Alden, in the Best in the Creative Sector category.

The Chamber says key findings from this year’s entries have concluded there has been a rise in the number of new businesses applying, as well as a wide range of different business sectors across the borough wanting to get involved.

Meanwhile, it says the response to the public vote category has been phenomenal. All the results have proven that business is still thriving in the local community despite economic uncertainty and that more and more businesses believe that the Merton Best Business Awards play a vital role in their future success.

Diana Sterck, CEO of Merton Chamber of Commerce said: “With the highest number of entries ever, we are looking forward to what promises to be an exciting and lively Awards event at the prestigious All England Lawn Tennis Club. I would like to thank all of those who entered and who have been nominated – Merton has a wonderful range of businesses in all sectors, and we are proud to be associated with them”.

The winners will be announced on September 26.
