What do you think makes Great Britain ‘great’? A nice cup of tea? A pint of ale? What about fish and chips? The Queen? Or maybe your favourite sports team or individual? Or what about our sense of humour?
Well, now you can have your say and nominate and vote for your own Great British ‘greats’. To celebrate hosting The Olympics, The Great Exhibition 2012 is staging the biggest-ever national online census to find out what we think about our Kingdom. You can choose any Great to nominate for votes – it’s what is Great about YOUR Great Britain that counts. Everyone can take part: individuals can choose their favourite landmarks or people; business owners that believe they are Great in their own town, city, or region or organisations that think they add value to the community. People can also nominate local heroes who go the extra mile for their community.
I’ve personally nominated the local businesses in Grantham and Newark who give our communities such great choice and service. I’ve also backed our great local landmarks, Newark Castle and Belvoir Castle as well as Grantham’s most famous son, Sir Isaac Newton.
To support Newark Businesses or Grantham Businesses, or just to get involved in the fun, visit The Great Exhibition 2012. Fly the flag for your favourite Great!
