John's Appledore, Market Street Kitchen was nominated as most loved as part of national ‘Love Local Day’. The event recognises the UK’s most loved local businesses as well as those most loved within their local and wider areas.
Thousands of nominations have poured in from across the UK over the last few weeks with a massive increase from 2020’s event. Many locals have cited the adaptation of their local businesses during the pandemic “as their lifeline”. Nominations for the love local day also highlighted friendliness, helpfulness and exceptional service that local businesses have provided during the most challenging times for local communities, high streets, markets, towns and city centres.
Dr Jackie Mulligan, founder of ShopAppy – the organisation behind the UKs Love Local Day, said: “It has been a challenging last decade none more so than this last year for our town centres and high streets, but we know there is tremendous love for local businesses in our communities. No more so than in Appledore.”
