Small shops in Rotherham are being urged to enter a national competition.

MP Sarah Champion is calling on independent retailers in Rotherham to enter the All Party Parliamentary Small Shops ‘Best Small Shops’ Competition.

Business owners can submit their application to the competition via setting out in no more than 500 words why they are the best small shop.

Those shortlisted will then be invited to attend the House of Commons awards reception on February 25.

Ms Champion said: “Rotherham has some of the best independent retailers in the country and I hope that they take this opportunity to prove it. Rotherham’s High Street in particular has seen a huge transformation. It now offers a fantastic experience for shoppers.”
