A shortlist of 25 of the most impressive applications will be invited to a Parliamentary Reception on 13th November to find out who will be crowned the Best Small Shop for 2018.

The Best Small Shops Competition is open to any small shop operating in the UK. The competition is free to enter and all shops who enter will also be promoted to consumers through an online Indie Retail Directory.

Tim said: "The South Lakes is home to many fantastic independent retailers who play an important role supporting the local economy and creating jobs all year round.

"This competition is the perfect opportunity for a small shop to showcase themselves and I would encourage local businesses to consider applying for this award."
