A competition has been launched by MP Claire Perry to find the best local independent shop in the Devizes Constituency.

People are being asked to vote for their favourite shop in one of four categories: Devizes, Marlborough, Tidworth and Small Town or Village for the Shop Local Awards.

The winner of each category will be presented with an award by the Government High Streets Minister at an event in Devizes in September where an overall winner will also be chosen.

Anyone voting for the winning shop in each category could win a £100 voucher to spend in that shop.

Mrs Perry said: “There are so many wonderful independent shops in the Devizes Constituency and I try to support them whenever I can.

“I wanted to get more recognition for these great local businesses.”

The competition will run until August 31. Cast your vote at www.claireperry.org.uk/ independent-shops
