Romford BID are delighted to announce the 12 Business Heroes who have been nominated in the recent campaign voted for by members of the public.
We firmly believe that it is the people of the town that make Romford special and different and the Business Heroes campaign is the start of a long-term plan to create a new personality for Romford, showcasing the great people behind our most successful or community-based businesses.
It's also brilliant to see sometimes overlooked members of the community be nominated and singled out for their dedication to making Romford a better place to visit and live.

Our hosts were busy during the first week of December promoting and collecting the nominations.
A final selection of 12 Heroes were then chosen and were captured on camera in their natural, professional habitats.
Look out on the website for short films surrounding 4 of our Heroes soon to be released.
