A busy high street is proving to be a hotspot for talented businesswomen.

Three of the Blackpool nominees for the EVAs (Enterprise Vision Awards) are members of the Highfield Road Business Group.

Julie Maughan from Woodhouse Opticians, Danielle Yates from Montague’s restaurant and Julia Eastwood of Artisan Tiles and Interiors have all been shortlisted for awards.

Julie, who has been nominated in the customer services category, said: “EVAs recognise women in the North West who most inspire others through their entrepreneurial success across 15 categories.

“I believe that one of the main aspects of excellent customer care is that our 
customers should be able to have absolute trust in the 
staff they are dealing with 
and I have made this aspect central to our company’s mission.”

Danielle, who is a finalist in the hospitality category, said: “Highfield Road specifically has three nominations and it is great to see that the calibre of businesses in our area is getting the recognition that it deserves.”

Customers are urged to vote for nominees, with the awards ceremony to be held on September 23.

Public voting closes on Monday September 9 at midnight.
