Hinckley Times - - FRONT PAGE - Email hinck­ley­times@trin­i­tymir­

THE HINCK­LEY Times is on the hunt for the town’s best shop - and we need you to get voting.

Our Top of the Shops cam­paign is look­ing for town cen­tre cus­tomers to get in touch so that we can crown Hinck­ley’s favourite store.

From vin­tage trea­sure troves to pretty bou­tiques and toy stores, we think that the town has all sorts of hid­den gems - and we’d like to hear from you.

If you have a shop which you can­not live with­out, or a favourite you have to visit each time you en­ter town, then let us know by nom­i­nat­ing your top Hinck­ley store.

We have teamed up with Won­der­ful Hinck­ley, Hinck­ley BID and Hinck­ley and Bos­worth Bor­ough Coun­cil to run the awards, which will cel­e­brate all that is spe­cial about our town.

And it will be run in con­junc­tion with our com­pe­ti­tion to find the best place for food called Best Bites 2017. De­tails of this are be­low.

Steve Wegerif, from Hinck­ley BID, said: “With the fes­tive sea­son just around the corner, we want to en­cour­age Hinck­ley to shop lo­cally - and we hope that these awards will help ev­ery­one to re­alise the amaz­ing ar­ray of shops we have right on our doorstep.

“Hinck­ley truly has some­thing for ev­ery­one, and we also have a great spread of in­de­pen­dent stores, too.

“If you have a favourite shop within the town cen­tre, then please nom­i­nate them - we want to use these awards to recog­nise all that is good within Hinck­ley.

“Whether it’s a clothes store, a sweet shop or a gift bou­tique, if you have a favourite, let them know by get­ting in touch and nom­i­nat­ing!”

The shops with the most votes will then be put into a short­list of eight.

The short­list of stores will then be en­cour­aged to have their fans and cus­tomers vote for them once more as we search for the win­ning shop to crown.

Bill Cullen, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the bor­ough coun­cil, said: “This com­pe­ti­tion is a great op­por­tu­nity to show­case the great qual­ity and di­ver­sity of of­fer of shops, restau­rants and cafes in Hinck­ley. We would en­cour­age you to en­ter and tell us who your favourites are”

Sa­man­tha Hadadi, from Won­der­ful Hinck­ley, said: “Many peo­ple don’t re­alise how many fan­tas­tic shops we have here in Hinck­ley.

“Take a stroll through the town and you’ll find all sorts - jew­ellery shops, gift stores, toy shops, record stores, and even health food stores. You never know what’s hid­den around the corner!

“Hope­fully these awards will help peo­ple to re­alise what we’ve got - and cele- brate the best of the best.”

If you would like to nom­i­nate your favourite store, then please email hinck­ley­times@trin­i­tymir­ Or con­tact us on Face­book Put in the ti­tle - Top of the Shops. The clos­ing date for nom­i­na­tions is Fri­day Novem­ber 17 2017.
