A message from Nick Hurd:
"I am supporting the Best Small Shops Competition and I would encourage local businesses in Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner to enter before entries close on Monday 9th September at 3pm. The competition has been launched to promote local independent retailers and to celebrate the hard work of businesses in local communities across the country.  Coverage of last year’s competition reached 3.25 million people and over 600 shops entered the competition. 

Entries must be a non-corporate business selling goods or services for consumption, rather than resale, and submissions will be judged based on a shop's entrepreneurial activities, their impact within the community, and innovation in their business.  If that sounds like your business, please enter here: https://www.indieretail.uk/best-small-shops/. The final of the Best Small Shops Competition is due to be held in Parliament on the 5th of November and I hope to see businesses from Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner represented there."
