Tamworth’s best pub, restaurant, shop and market stall as votes for by the public has been announced by local MP, Christopher Pincher.
Mr Pincher asked local residents to vote in his quest to find the best and most popular traders in the town.
Local shops, pubs, restaurants and market stalls were each given bundles of voting papers to give to their customers to vote. The poll was also run online and hundreds of local people got involved.
Mr Pincher said, “We have many wonderful and unique independent retailers, restaurants and market stalls here in Tamworth and in our surrounding villages. I believe it is important that we celebrate and support our local traders so they are here for generations to come. That is why I ran our own “Best Local Shops, Restaurants and Market Stalls 2015” campaign.”
There were four categories for people to vote on –best pub, restaurant, shop and market stall.
Each category winner receives a certificate and a one-hour e-commerce session with Product Nation. There is also a special prize for the most votes across all categories and that winner will also receive a £50 voucher for printing and design from The Printing Shed printing company.
The competition closed on 20th March with a final flurry of votes before they were all counted.
The winners of each category are:
- Pub: Ubar, Church Street
- Restaurant: The Kitchen Café, Marmion Street
- Independent shop: Mercian News, Victoria Road
- Market stall: J L Fruit
The overall winner, the trader who got the most votes, is The Kitchen on Marmion Street.
Mr Pincher added, “This competition was very closely fought and many businesses and residents came back to my office for nomination forms again and again. I am really pleased so many businesses took part and I thank them all. I would like to congratulate the winners and especially the overall winner The Kitchen, just down the road from my office.”
The winners will receive their certificates and winners prizes shortly.
