Judges gathered at Hintlesham Hall today to short list candidates for this year’s Stars of Suffolk awards.

The judges had the tough job of whittling down hundreds of deserving entries to just three in each of the 13 categories.

Terry Hunt, Editor-in-Chief at Archant Suffolk, said: “Once again, the public has responded amazingly to Stars of Suffolk. We have had so many brilliant nominations.

“The judges certainly had a difficult task and we are very grateful to them for their time. Thank you also to Hintlesham Hall for hosting the judging and for a superb lunch.’’

This year’s Stars of Suffolk awards will take place on the evening of Friday, November 22, with Suffolk New College once again very kindly providing the venue and catering.

Sponsors for the awards are: Servest, Ramada Encore hotel, Suffolk New College, Cipher Crystal, Suffolk County Council, Hudson Signs, Costa, Ipswich Hospital, Deben Transport, BBC Radio Suffolk, Hintlesham Hall, the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, and Archant Suffolk.
