“It is so important that we help the independent businesses which make such a vital contribution to life in our local area.

“We should be proud of the vibrancy of our high streets in Hornsey and Wood Green. This is a fantastic opportunity to support and reward the best of our local independent retailers.

“I am determined to take a stand to support our high streets, and I am very excited to find out which shops are most valued by residents.”
