Well, it’s been two weeks of voting, bunting and typing to get all the reviews online and onto the love-o-meter….
Votes have been counted and verified, and without further ado, we can now reveal the winners of the Local and Loved Awards 2014!
The Most Loved Business in Wrexham is… Mecca Bingo!!

“Dewi is so motivating and always gives 100% to all his clients. He deserves to have the title of Wrexham’s best personal trainer because he is the best. Who would have thought that training could be fun? I would highly recommend Dewi...!!”
