A WIMBORNE farm shop has made the final of a national award. 

The East Street Deli has made the regional finalists at the Farm Shop and Deli Show’s Retail Awards. 

Judging took place last November, where a panel of judges came together at Fortnum & Mason in London for a day of deliberations and decisions.  

East Street Deli was selected from hundreds of entries in the independent sector across the England and Scotland. 

It has been chosen as one of just nine finalists for the ‘newcomer’ award for the best farm shop/deli. 

The business was founded by Claire and Simon Warren in June 2020.  

Simon said: “Whether we win, lose or draw you can be sure that we are truly humbled to have been listed as a finalist for such a prestigious retail award.  

“A massive thank you goes to everyone that has supported us throughout this journey. We love what we get to do and can’t wait for our trip to the award ceremony.” 

Regional winners will be selected from the category finalists and, with the retailer of the year accolade, newcomer of the year as well as best in category and best in region awards up for grabs. 

The winners will be announced on Monday, April 29 at Farm Shop and Deli Show.
