Great British High Street Awards, 2015

Twyford has finished a runner-up in the race to be crowned Britain’s 'Best Village High Street'. Twyford and Brigg made it into the top three but were pipped to the post by West Kilbride at an award ceremony in London’s Admiralty House earlier today.

Gordon Storey, Twyford Together's business leader who managed Twyford's campaign said: "I would like to thank everyone who voted and all of our members who helped put on such a good show for the judges. We would have happily settled for second place when we filled out the forms earlier this year. It created a real buzz in the village and also reminded residents what Twyford Together is all about and what we have achieved."

Under Secretary of State (Minister for Local Government), Marcus Jones said: "Twyford deserves the very highest praise for being a finalist in this year’s Great British High Street Awards. Their innovative ideas and hard work on the ground really made them stand out and we’ll be sharing their excellent example to help others learn from their success."
