More than sixty shops were nominated by over four hundred residents of Beverley and Holderness and Graham has been delighted to read the nomination statements which show just how vibrant high streets in Beverley and Holderness are.
Graham was eager to start these awards to give shops a boost in advance of Christmas.
Locally owned businesses are important to the economy. Money generated by these independent shops stays in the community, provides local employment and adds to the vibrancy and beauty of our area.
Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart said: “If these awards show anything, it’s that we have the most incredibly vibrant high streets in Beverley, Hedon, Hornsea, Withernsea and beyond. We are lucky to have so many independent shops selling beautiful, unusual and high-quality goods. They help to make Beverley and Holderness a fabulous shopping and recreational destination.
"I’ve been overwhelmed by the love and pride people have displayed for our local shops of every type.
“Independent shops like Grace Eva, Melbourne, Dinky Pinkies, Bella Moda, and The Town House are major reasons why people love to live in Beverley and Holderness: the best part of the country.”
