mgt awards

After the huge success of our previous 2 years of awards we are excited to bring you the Mum's Guide to Hertford Awards 2024 aimed at recognising the local people, businesses and organisations that help make Hertford and the surrounding area such a great place for families.

You are now able to nominate a business in one of our 10 categories.

You can nominate as many or as few businesses as you like in as many or as few categories as you like, but businesses must be based or operate in Hertford and the surrounding villages and business owners or employees cannot nominate their own business.

Those with the most nominations in each category will make the shortlist for the final voting round.  Nominations close at midnight on 10th June 2024 at midnight.

The final voting round will open on 14th June 2024

Full terms and conditions for the 2024 Awards nominations and voting are available here.

We are committed to a fair nominations process so we ask that you provide your name and email address to help us ensure each individual business/organisation is only nominated once per person.

  • You can nominate in as many or as few categories as you like and you can nominate more than one business/organisation/individual in each.
  • Feel free to leave a comment if you wish.
  • In the interests of fairness, please only nominate in categories where YOU have firsthand experience as a user of the business/organisation IN THAT CATEGORY. To give everyone a fair chance please avoid the temptation to blanket vote one business across multiple categories just because they are eligible.
  • This is a local awards and is intended to celebrate our small businesses and organisations as decided by their local customers. Please do not nominate if you are not local.
  • If you've been encouraged by a business to nominate them, please consider if you can also nominate other local businesses in other categories so we can include as many businesses as possible.
  • Sorry, but business owners & their employees cannot nominate their own business.
Thanks for taking the time to help us make these awards fair. We will discount nominations that we deem to be ineligible or break our rules. Full T&Cs for the 2024 Awards can be found here.
