Mike Crockart MP for Edinburgh West is calling on small shops in his constituency to enter the All Party Parliamentary Group on Small Shop’s ‘Best Small Shops Competition’.
Small shops can submit their application to the competition via www.bestsmallshops.uk setting out in no more than 500 words why they are the best small shops including; innovation in your business, community engagement and entrepreneurial activity.
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to a Parliamentary Reception on 25th February 2015, 1pm to 3pm where the winner will be announced.
Mr Crockart said:
“Edinburgh West is home to many fantastic small shops, all of whom are more than worthy of winning this competition.
“This competition is the perfect opportunity for the small shops of Edinburgh West to get the recognition they deserve for the role they play in supporting the local community and creating jobs all year round.
“I want to encourage every small shop in Edinburgh to enter this competition and I would be absolutely delighted and immensely proud to see an Edinburgh business being announced as the winner in Parliament on the 25th February.”
