We can only accept entries from businesses which are based in the County of Lancashire.
For the avoidance of doubt, we consider the county to be that laid out by the administrative districts set out in the Local Government Act of 1972.
This means we are not able to accept applications from businesses based in areas such as Bolton or Wigan which are both in Greater Manchester or Southport which is based in Merseyside.
Each year we regularly receive applications from businesses based in the North West but not in Lancashire and have to disappoint applicants by rejecting their applications.
