Discover Hereford: Competition launched by Jesse Norman MP will recognise independent businesses
INDEPENDENT businesses in Hereford will be recognised in a new competition launched by MP Jesse Norman to promote the city.
The competition, Discover Hereford, will highlight the city’s favourite places to eat, drink and shop over the next three months.
Residents are being asked to nominate their favourite independent businesses in a selected category, and say why they think they are special.
Jesse said: "I understand how tough it is to run a small business in Hereford at the moment and I have been vigorously lobbying the Government to do more for small businesses, particularly on business rates and city centre regeneration.”
Nominations opened on Monday for the first category – independent restaurants and cafes in Hereford – and will remain open until October 4.
Anyone can nominate and there will be a prize for the best nomination in each category, as well as for the winners themselves. The winners will also be invited to a special celebration in the new year.
Nominations can be sent in to Mr Norman at Suite 3, Penn House, Broad Street, Herefor, HR4 9AP, by email to discoverhereforduk@ gmail.com or via Twitter to @Jesse_Norman at #discoverhereford.
All nominations must include the sender’s contact details including telephone number and address.
