Can you help a local business to win a prestigious award?

A local delicatessen has been shortlisted for a national award.

Billingtons of Lenzie is up for ‘Delicatessen of the Year’ in the annual Farm Shop and Deli Awards, which recognises “excellence in independent speciality retailers”.

An expert panel, including BBC Radio 2’s gastronome Nigel Barden, will judge the competition with the help of a poll of consumers.

Nigel said: “Last year I was lucky enough to meet some hugely driven, focused and talented individuals championing the absolute best in fresh, local produce that the United Kingdom has to offer. Our winners are set to represent a gold standard in the speciality retail arena. I’m extremely excited to see what entries we receive this year!”

Owner Sue Billington, addded: “We are delighted to be entered into the awards, and wish to thank all our customers for their support”
