MARLOW FM HIDDEN GEMS 2019

Hidden Gems exists to champion, highlight and say thank you to the good and the great unsung heroes of our wonderful town. Join us in this positive celebration of the best of Marlow!

You can nominate individual/businesses in twelve categories. We want to know if you’ve received a fantastic meal at your local pub or restaurant, been impressed by local produce you have sampled, attended a great event or been wowed by great customer service.

Nominations will close at the end of September and we then create a shortlist and open that shortlist for voting.

Nine awards are voted for by the public and three are decided by a judging panel. The recognition the awards offer make a fantastic and positive impact and there has never been a better time to support your local community so please get nominating!
