A Tewin-based shop received an award for supporting their community throughout lockdown from Campaign to Protect Rural England Hertfordshire.
Richard Bullen, chairman of CPRE Hertfordshire presented the Chairman’s Award to Tewin Stores last month.
Mr Bullen explained Tewin Stores had been given the award for the way the shop supported the community through the lockdown.
He also said Tewin Stores has established itself as a community shop over a number of years, and has demonstrated that it has a sustainable future because it has never depended on the efforts of just one or two individuals.
The involvement of the community in supporting the shop - as customers, volunteers and by helping to fund the purchase of the premises - also impressed the judges.
