I am delighted to announce the launch of my first-ever 'Carshalton and Wallington Best Business Competition'!
The competition is now open, and I am urging Carshalton and Wallington residents to vote for their favourite independent shops and businesses.
Votes will be open until 5pm on Tuesday 30th November and are spread over three categories- the best local independent shop, the best café/restaurant, and best micro/online business. An award will also be given to the business which receives the most votes overall in any category.
The winners will be announced on Small Business Saturday which takes place on Saturday 4th December 2021. Small Business Saturday UK is a not-for-profit campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages the UK to support small businesses.
The winners will each receive a Certificate presented at the Cryer Arts Theatre at 1pm on Saturday 4th December- come on down!
Independent shops and businesses across Carshalton and Wallington have had a tough 18 months due to Coronavirus, with many getting in touch with me to share concerns about reduced footfall, rent payments, and industry support.
It is therefore important, now more than ever before, to shop local and support our small businesses so they are here for generations to come.
It's really easy to have your say- just fill out the below form and vote for the best local independent shop, the best café/restaurant, and best micro/online business below!
Businesses can also download voting forms and posters to display to their customers through here.
Good luck to everyone!
