King’s Lynn-based MARS UK sponsoring Employee of the Year category in this year’s Mayor’s Business Awards





A museum curator who worked hard on exhibitions in a town’s museum was named Employee of the Year in the 2023 West Norfolk Mayor’s Business Awards – and now we are looking to crown another winner.

Lindsey Bavin won the award last March for her hard work at True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum, at Lynn, and we will be crowning her successor at the Alive Corn Exchange in the Tuesday Market Place on Friday, March 1.

On winning last year, Lindsey said: “I started off as a volunteer and worked my way up and it’s a unique experience going from that, so this is the cherry on top for me. I love history and I love telling stories, so to be able to do that as a career is amazing.”

The award is once again sponsored by the Lynn base of confectionary and pet food giant MARS UK, and at last year’s ceremony, Maja Szczepanska-Danby from the company said: “To be a great employee, you need many attributes to be successful, with passion being high on the list. All of the nominees this year are truly great and their passion really shone through in each of our discussions.”

When looking to choose the winner of this year’s Employee of the Year award, judges will be looking for an outstanding contribution not only to the organisation and its success but also for someone concerned about colleagues’ welfare and enhancing the working environment and customer experience.

Our associates are working to ensure that everything you know and love consistently evolves to deliver: A Better World for Pets™ Inspire Moments of Everyday Happiness Better Food Today.
