Stephen calls on Cardiff South and Penarth’s best small shops to enter national competition

Stephen is calling on small shops in his Cardiff South and Penarth constituency to enter a nationwide ‘Best Small Shops’ competition.

Run by the All Party Parliamentary Small Shops Group and administered by the Independent Retailers Confederation, the competition is designed to bring small retailers to the attention of parliamentarians and the local community, and to celebrate the economic powerhouse represented by small retailers in the UK economy.

Stephen said: “Here in Cardiff and Penarth, we have so many fantastic small shops. This is a great opportunity for them to get recognition for the brilliant work they do supporting the community and creating jobs all year round.”

Entries can be made online at www.bestsmallshops.uk . Small shops should set out in no more than 500 words why they are the best, covering areas like innovation in business, community engagement and entrepreneurial activity.

The closing date for entries is 4pm on January 30. All shortlisted candidates will be invited to a Parliamentary Reception at the House of Commons where the winner will be announced on February 25.
