Local people voted for the businesses they felt showcased the best local and best loved in the area.
Organised by thebestof, a national network that is dedicated to supporting local businesses, the Local and Loved Business Awards 2015 came to its final crescendo in January, and saw local people vote in categories such as ‘UK Business of the Year’ and ‘Most Loved’ in a specific industry sector.
Colin Mackenzie, the owner of Pampered Pets, said: “We are really, really chuffed. Well done to our staff and my son (Conner) and my lady (Brenda). We are quite taken aback by what has happened, but the animals are our passion. It’s hard work and its all about dedication, but it is all worth it for the animals.”
