Owner, Paul Batts was grateful to have received the nod after the independent business struggled through the pandemic.

Mr Batts said: "We are very proud to be one of the final eight in the high street hero category.

"The past two years have been very hard for small businesses and it feels great to be recognised for doing a good job.

"It will also be nice to represent Weston again in a UK award ceremony, just to show you can be recognised in a national award without being from one of the big cities.

"We love what we do in the shop and also in the community."
