Market Harborough is a finalist in this year’s Great British High Street Awards, in the Large Market Town category. The town is up against Bridgenorth in Shropshire and Hinkley, also in Leicestershire.

A win would give the town national publicity and a share of a £100,000 investment to boost the town’s visitor numbers.

The Harborough bid was entered by the Harborough Chamber of Commerce with support from Harborough Market, Sustainable Harborough, and the council’s tourism officer.
