Theresa May has encouraged local residents to vote for Twyford in the ‘Great British High Street’ awards. Twyford has been named as one of the finalists in the contest, having beaten off competition from hundreds of other high streets across the UK. Each finalist will receive a visit from an expert judge, and members of the public can also vote for the winner online.
Twyford has been nominated in the ‘village’ category and will compete against Brigg and West Kilbride. There are seven categories in total, and an overall winner will also be named from among all the finalists in each category.
Over 230 applications were received for this year’s awards, meaning that the finalists have already been judged among the best high streets in the UK. The eventual winners will be selected partly through a public vote via http://thegreatbritishhighstreet.co.uk/high-street-of-the-year-award
Commenting, Theresa said: “It’s fantastic that Twyford has been named as one of the finalists in the Great British High Street awards, meaning that it has already been judged as one of the best high streets in the country. This is a great achievement and is a tribute to our local shops, businesses, community groups and others who work hard to support the high street. Now I hope that local residents will vote online as it would be great to see Twyford named as the overall winner.”
