Dynamics Cleaners are delighted to announce to have been nominated for Large Business of the Year 2019 award ceremony organized by Stamford Mercury newspaper. Dynamics are amongst three other companies and are privileged to be taking part again this year. In 2017 we were awarded as Highly Commended Large Business of the Year and since then, we have grown in strength and expanded the company with various different contracts. This is, of course, thanks to our amazing, professionally trained cleaning team and fantastic clients who keep supporting us as well as recommending to other businesses. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are.

 

The Mercury Business Awards are the biggest of their kind in the Stamford, Bourne and Rutland area and for the last two years they have grown substantially. A prestigious event in the local calendar, the awards recognise the achievements of business people across Stamford, Rutland, Bourne, The Deepings and the surrounding areas.

 

Quoting from Stamford Mercury Newspaper:

‘’There will be 10 awards up for grabs so there’s really something for every business across the area to get their teeth into.

The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony and we are delighted to announce that this ceremony will once again be held at Greetham Valley – our long-standing event partners.

A panel of judges have worked hard to vet all applications and draw up a shortlist of three in each category.

Categories in the awards recognise innovation, small and large businesses, independent retailers and not-for-profit enterprises. One person will win the distinguished title of Businessperson of the Year.

Each of these three businesses will then be invited to the ceremony on Friday, September 20, which will include a three-course meal and promises to be a fantastic night.

It’s time to consider which enterprises have impressed you – because the Mercury Business Awards team is preparing for entries.

The 2019 celebration of ‘the best in business’ will include awards for customer care and for employee – or team – of the year.

We are in support of Stamford Mercury and found a little, but very interesting history about the newspaper.

Please see below some remarkable information:

The Stamford Mercury (also the Lincoln, Rutland and Stamford Mercury, the Rutland and Stamford Mercury, and the Rutland Mercury) based in Stamford, England, claims to be “Britain’s oldest continuously published newspaper title”.

The Mercury has been published since 1712 but its masthead formerly claimed it was established in 1695 and that it was “Britain’s Oldest Newspaper”.

Three editions (Stamford and The Deepings, Rutland, and Bourne) are published every Friday. The ABC circulation figure in 2011 was 16,675.

The Mercury is now owned by Iliffe Media; sister newspapers include The Rutland Times. In January 2017, Johnston Press sold 13 of its East Midlands and East Anglia titles (including the Mercury) to Iliffe Media for £17m.

 

An edition of the Mercury from 22 May 1718 is the earliest newspaper in the British Library’s newspaper reading room, The Newsroom.

 

Archives

The Mercury possesses the largest archive of any provincial newspaper.[citation needed] It contains over 20,000 newspapers and is complete from the middle of the 18th century. It also holds substantial numbers of annual volumes and individual copies prior to that, dating back to 1714.

 

Since 2005, the archive has been in the care of the Stamford Mercury Archive Trust. The Trust received a grant of £305,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to undertake a five-year conservation programme. The Trust set out to microfilm every known copy of The Stamford Mercury in existence. Access to the archive is free for personal research. A copy of the complete microfilm run of the paper is available at Stamford Library.
