Mr Stevenson said: “We were delighted with the overwhelmingly positive response the Teen Verdict Awards received from Brighton and Hove’s local businesses. It was nice to see that they can both appreciate the city’s large population of young people as a valuable demographic, as well as support local, enterprising initiatives.
“After extensive judging, we have compiled a shortlist of the businesses we believe offer the best goods, services or facilities to the youth of Brighton and Hove.”
