The Parlour Pet Boutique based in Wootton Wawen in Warwickshire has been named as a\u00a0finalist in the New Business Category of the Networking Mummies UK Ltd Recognition National Business Awards.\r\n\r\nThe Parlour Pet Boutique opened its doors in February last year and has just celebrated its first\u00a0birthday. Director Vikki Gordon left a career in nursing to open a pet shop. \u00a0The business has\u00a0enjoyed\u00a0steady growth and\u00a0is set to see more changes this year as she completes her City & Guilds qualification in dog grooming and introduces this service to her customers.\r\n\r\nVikki said:\u00a0\u201cI am absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted as a finalist in these National business awards. This time last year I was a senior nurse in the NHS and now I am running a limited company. To be recognised for all the hard work is amazing.\u201d\r\n\r\nThis is the third year Networking Mummies UK Ltd have hosted their National Business Awards to recognise the hard working mums and dads across the country.\r\n\r\nThe winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on\u00a0April 16 at Aston Villa Football Club in Birmingham where they will also be raising funds for Meningitis Now on the night.\r\n\r\nFor more information please visit www.parlourpetboutique.co.uk.
