Waverley Borough Council has been shortlisted for an award for its support to local businesses by The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).

This included swift payment of government and local financial support, processing of grants, and effective signposting to assist businesses in operating and in supporting their staff.

Waverley also promoted high streets and other local businesses, and has hosted networking opportunities, training and mentoring as well as bringing more investment and footfall into the area.

Waverley was among a handful to be shortlisted from the 400 entries from 250 councils for an FSB award, the first of its kind.
