A CARD and gift shop in Somerset has made it through to the finals of prestigious industry awards.

Sentiments in Burnham High Street is one of only five shops in the South West to be nominated as a finalist for independent card retailer of the year by RETAS.

The RETAS awards, run by Progressive Greetings Worldwide magazine, recognise excellence across the card industry.

John Lyons and manageress Lauren Keen have been running the store since April 2012 and have set about breathing new life into the shop since.

Mr Lyons said:“I am absolutely thrilled to reach the finals in our first year and this reflects the tremendous effort and hard work put in by the whole team in that period”.
