Deadline Extended!

Member of Parliament for Great Yarmouth, Brandon Lewis, has today extended the deadline for the Yarmouth Greats competition.

Due to the high level of public interest in the competition, the deadline for voting has now been extended to 10th October, giving residents and extra two weeks to vote for their favourite high street shop, tourist attraction or hospitality venue.

Brandon Lewis: “I have been absolutely delighted by the level of interest in the Yarmouth Greats campaign. So many residents have voted, giving glowing reviews of the shops, restaurants, pubs and tourist attractions across our area. The voting isn’t slowing down, so I have decided to extend the competition deadline, giving local people extra time to get involved. I look forward to reading even more good stories about the businesses that make Yarmouth Great.”
