South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon is calling on shops in south Norfolk to enter the ‘Best Small Shops’ competition.
The contest invites businesses to submit applications of no more than 500 words, with the winner to be decided on criteria like innovation, local engagement and entrepreneurial activities.
Mr Bacon said: “This is a great opportunity for small shops in my constituency to get the recognition they deserve for the excellent work they do all year round.
“Small shops provide vital support for communities, and our towns and villages would be poorer without them.”
Submissions can be made at www.bestsmallshops.uk - the deadline is at 4pm on January 30.
