We all know how lucky we are in Rutland and Melton to have an incredible number of independent shops.
Not only do they provide employment and support our local economy, but they make our communities incredibly vibrant, and I am proud to represent such a variety across our communities.
Residents of Rutland and Melton have nominated almost 100 shops - and all are brilliant enhancements to our communities.
Now, it's time to vote for your favourites in each category.
I can't wait to announce the winners!
