Suffolk Business Awards was due to take place on Thursday, June 25. But now the event – to be hosted by Kesgrave Hall, Ipswich, and organised by East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star owner Archant – has been moved to Thursday, September 24.

That means the entry deadline has been extended – giving businesses until Sunday, June 14, to get them in.
