The Best of Farnham business owner, Martin Davidge-Stringer comments, “We congratulate all our local businesses who qualified for thebestof Business of the Year Awards.   Local people have taken the time to give feedback on the business after using their services and we have seen some fantastic reviews displaying the great service you can receive from local independent business across our high streets. On behalf of the businesses, I would like to thank every single person who took the time to leave a review. By doing so they publicly acknowledged the contribution that these businesses make to our local economy.”  

“Bears is a very worthy winner. The number and quality of the reviews they received is a real testament to their ongoing commitment to deliver excellent service and a positive customer experience. They fought off a spirited display from Yiayias at the Fox, eventually winning by 20 votes.”
