Elmbridge Independent Retailer of the Year Awards 

This July the Elmbridge Independent Retailer of the Year Awards are back for a ninth successive year, giving shoppers the chance to vote for their favourite retailer, café, restaurant, salon or special independent who has gone above and beyond in recent times.

These past twelve months our high streets and independent traders have shown once again why they are so valued in the community. When we needed a top up, a gift or a tasty treat to help us through this difficult time they answered the call.

This was shown in the fantastic response we had to our awards in 2020 where Evie Loves Toast in Cobham claimed the prestigious ‘Best Independent Retailer Award’ for Elmbridge.

Residents can once again vote online in July for their favourite across 7 categories as we seek to champion and promote our great local independents who have consistently delivered a quality offer and exceptional service.

The vote will close on midday on 31 July 2021. 

Last years winners can be found below. Good luck and happy voting!
