The winners were chosen based on the strength of their anonymous nominations and the contribution they make to the wider community and local economy.

“It is Love Your High Street week this week and by shopping in local retail outlets you can help support and sustain Torbay’s town centres.”

Love your High Street received over 50 nominations, highlighting local people and businesses that really make a difference to shopping experiences in Torbay.

Kevin Foster MP, one of the panel members who judge the competition, said: “Judging the High Street hero award was not easy given the great small businesses we have across our bay. All the applicants were of a very high standard. The winners of each town stood out as they make a difference to the bay in unique ways, which is important to ensure we continue to love our high streets.”
