Our village businesses did us proud again in the Best Local Shop Awards 2021, organised by Rushcliffe MP, Ruth Edwards. Whilst Ruddington outlets missed out on the top spot, with News Shop Cotgrave winning overall, it was fantastic to see our very own Philo’s Deli and The Pet Pantry (both pictured) scooping both runners-up prizes.
Meanwhile, The Frame Breakers took one of the runners-up prizes in the Best Pub in Rushcliffe Competition, which was also organised by Ruth and took place at the same time. The other runner-up was The Plough Inn in Wysall and the overall winner was The Air Hostess in Tollerton.
After announcing the winners and runners-up on Small Business Saturday (4th December), Ruth commented:
“I always enjoy running competitions like these because they show just how important local shops and small businesses are to communities throughout Rushcliffe. They are often the backbones of our local economies and provide opportunities and jobs to local people. I wanted to thank and recognise their place in the Rushcliffe business community with these competitions.
I would also like to thank everyone who got involved and voted for their favourite shop or pub. I know every vote is very much appreciated.”
