We’re thrilled to announce that Housekeep has been named as double-winners at the inaugural Local Business Awards.
We’re winners of both the Trade Award and the Technology Innovation Award.
The Trade Award is designed to recognise a business that provides essential services to local people & businesses, including electrical & plumbing services, carpentry, maintenance and cleaning - which are all services we specialise in.
As well as being recognised for our contribution to the trade sector, we also picked up the Technology Innovation Award, which was created to recognise businesses that create positive change through technology. In this category, the judges were looking for technology that is ethical and improves the lives of the people that use it.
What are the Local Business Awards?
The Local Business Awards are a social enterprise on a mission to celebrate the best local, ethical & sustainable businesses in the UK. They’re an independent organisation that believes celebrating local businesses on a national level can inspire a local business revolution. Excitingly, 2021 is the Local Business Awards' first year, having recently evolved from the Lotus Awards.
