Bill Wiggin MP, for North Herefordshire, has given his backing to Leominster High Street after it was announced as a finalist in the Great British High Street Competition 2016 in the Rising Star category.

Leominster High Street will now battle it out with two other finalists in the category. An expert judge will visit the High Streets and around 50% of the final decision will rest on a public vote.

Bill Wiggin MP said:

“It is a fantastic achievement for Leominster High Street to reach the final of this competition and is great reward for the men and women who work so hard every day serving the community.

“Leominster has a wide range of excellent independent shops and it is a delight to see the High Street thriving. I would urge everyone to vote for Leominster so that they get the recognition they so richly deserve.”
