Little Ankle Biters Sussex are delighted to announce the winners of their 2022 business and community awards

These annual awards honour individuals and organisations who have made an extraordinary impact in their community.

In their first year in Sussex following the launch of Little Ankle Biters Sussex last year we have been absolutely blown away by the phenomenal response we saw both to nominations and voting which hit into the thousands within the first hours of going live. The awards are all about celebrating local businesses and charities that provide an outstanding service to families and carers by gaining the seal of approval from those who experience them most.

Editor of Little Ankle Biters Sussex, Gina Lee, from Lancing, said:

“I am overwhelmed by the incredible response we have seen to our first awards over the last 3 months and would like to thank everyone who took time to nominate or vote for a local business. The outpouring of love and support we have seen for so many businesses across the county has been really special. And I have particularly loved the way in which our nominees and finalists have all supported and championed each other’s businesses. Of course there has been a competitive element in there but at Little Ankle Biters we are all about building a sense of community – a village if you will – and that sense of community has really come to the fore through this process.”
