Putney Awards 2024

We recently hosted our annual meeting, in which we gave out awards to businesses as voted for by the people of Putney. We received hundreds of votes with so many positive things said about lots of businesses here in Putney. Each category has 3 winners (apart from our social media award), as they were so close.

Putney is blessed with super friendly service establishments who care intensely about serving their customers. This years winners are all long established businesses with lots of experience in caring for customer needs.
