February has always been a special time of year for all those in love. It is a time when loved ones go out of their way to show they care. And that’s just what thebestof Bath has been encouraging local people to do in Bath.  The Local & Loved awards has seen the best businesses across the UK go head to head to earn the title of ‘The Most Loved Business in the UK’. For the 14 days leading up to Valentine’s Day consumers have had the chance to review their favourite local businesses reinvigorating and raising the profile of their local community. During the competition tens of thousands of reviews were added equating to one every 11 seconds as the contest reached its crescendo. The locals here in Bath have really done their bit.

The campaign set up by James Tribe said, “It’s been so exciting to see such a huge number of people actively talking about the great local businesses and demonstrating their feelings by voting in the Local & Loved campaign. It just goes to show how much our communities are supporting their local independent businesses, which is great news for our local area. Independent businesses are at the heart of Bath and lots of local business owners – and their loyal staff – are feeling great today because their efforts have been recognised and appreciated by so many of their loyal customers.” 

Thanks for participating and hope you enjoyed it.
