thebestof Eastbourne has announced the winner of the thebestof Business of the Year 2020 Awards. 
The Dental Barn received 123 reviews during the campaign, winning the coveted accolade of Business of the Year in Eastbourne 2020.  
In second place, with 81 reviews, was The Yoga Life Studio and in third position with 56 reviews, Social Media Consultancy Ditzy Media.
The Business of the Year Awards are organised by thebestof, a marketing organisation committed to raising the profile of local, independent businesses serving Eastbourne and the surrounding areas. 
During the campaign, local people were encouraged to show their support for their favourite local business by leaving a review of the service they received from the business. The Awards operate at a Local level to recognise and award the Business of the Year in their Town, and at a National Level to recognise the overall UK Business of the Year, the Top 100 Businesses in the UK and the Business of the Year in each Business Category. 
At a national level, Tectonic Digital Services won in Electrical Services, Ditzy Media won in PR & Media (5th year running) and RSE Group won in Recruitment Agency.
David Ruddle comments, “We congratulate all our local businesses who took part in thebestof Business of the Year Awards.  While national news can sometimes focus on what’s going wrong with local high streets, we feel it’s important to acknowledge small businesses for their contribution to the local economy and their role in the community, that can often get forgotten. Local people have given their feedback on the businesses after using their services and we’ve seen some fantastic reviews, showcasing the great service you can receive from local businesses on our high streets. On behalf of the businesses, I’d like to thank every person who took the time to leave a review. By doing so they publicly acknowledged the difference that these businesses make to our area.”  
“The Dental Barn is a very worthy winner. The number and quality of the reviews they received are a real testament to their ongoing commitment to deliver excellent service and a positive customer experience. It was a head to head battle with a late surge by The Dental Barn to secure the win”
“Those businesses who won or were commended in their category nationally can be equally proud of their achievements. With 3 businesses winning their national categories and a further 7 being highly commended, our local businesses have certainly placed Eastbourne on the map for all the right reasons.”
To ensure thebestof Eastbourne really is showcasing the best local businesses this year thanks to sponsorship from the Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce and the Eastbourne Hospitality Association they ran a FREE to enter and FREE to vote award for Best Entertainment Venue and Best Independent Retailers.
Eastbourne customers vote by leaving reviews for their favourites and with 60 reviews The Royal Hippodrome won Best Entertainment Venue. With 47 reviews Transformations won Best Independent Retail with Grand Flowers Eastbourne being highly commended.
Mark Cotman  said “The Eastbourne Hospitality Association are very happy to support ‘local’ initiatives, within our field, to enable our members and partners to gain further exposure of their businesses and facilities. The facilitation of this through ‘Best Of Eastbourne’ enables us to ensure it is kept ‘local’, which is vitally important to our Hospitality sector within Eastbourne.”
The final word goes to Alison Thompson, from The Dental Barn, “I am so proud of my team. The comments and support from patients has made me realise that we have a dental life changing business. The support we have from David is always without question.”
