Judges appointed for Shop Front Awards 2018

The Marchmont Association has run its annual Shop Front Awards since 2006. The primary objective of these awards is to enhance the trading environment by improving the appearance of local shops. The awards also help to promote the restoration and conservation of the area's historic character, with many of the shops in Marchmont Street, Leigh Street, Judd Street and Tavistock Place occupying Grade II listed Georgian buildings and purpose-built Edwardian premises.

Each year local shops are assessed by an independent panel of judges, with awards being presented by the Mayor of Camden in different categories, including 'Best Kept Shop Front' and 'Most Improved Shop Front'. Special Commendations are made when appropriate, such as in 2009 when the Mayor of Camden presented a certificate to the longest, continuously trading shop in the area, Povey's Hardware store at 6 Leigh Street, but sadly, this shop ceased trading in September 2012.

Fork Deli Patisserie (pictured), 85 Marchmont Street, received the Marchmont Association's award for Best Shop Front 2016-17 from the Deputy Mayor of Camden, Councillor Richard Cotton, on Thursday 16th March. In 2018, only shops which have carried out improvement works in the past year will be considered for the award. Three judges have been appointed by the Marchmont Association Committee, and they will be inspecting the short-listed shops in the coming weeks.

Our awards have generated some media coverage for local businesses, as well as contributing to the general improvement of the area. Photographs of past award winners can be viewed on Flickr.com via the link below.
