 Chairman of the Development and Leisure Committee, Cllr Jane Sartin, said: “The Love Hertford Awards have been a fantastic celebration of Hertford’s shops and services, both in the town centre and in neighbourhood shopping parades.  It was good to see a mix of independents and national chains recognised, and I hope it has reminded everyone of all that’s on offer on our doorstep.  There is every reason to shop local in Hertford.”
