The Golden Broom Awards is Weymouth’s latest opportunity to showcase the amazing businesses in the town! This gives businesses a chance to be recognised for their hard work which helps make Weymouth the place to be for everyone living, working and visiting the area.

In October 2019, the polls were opened, and the people of Weymouth and surrounding areas were able to tell us in under 50 words why their chosen business should win!
