An independent health food store has won an award following a public vote.
Julie Goodwin and her team, who run Natural Health, scooped the top spot in the Health and Wellbeing category in the Love Hertford Awards 2018. The store was also the finalist in the Food and Drink Retailer category.
The store, which is based in Hertford, as well as the nearby town of Welwyn Garden City, was voted for by the public, with more than 2,500 votes cast.
A judging panel made up of the Mayor of Hertford and representatives of the Hertfordshire Mercury newspaper, Axis Magazine, Visit Herts, Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce, the previous Mayor of Hertford, the Chairman of the Council’s Development and Leisure Committee and the newly appointed Town Centre Officer had the extremely difficult task of considering comments from the public, alongside the number of votes received to decide upon the winner and finalist for the nine categories available.
