A VALE business is celebrating after scooping a BestOf Local and Loved Award for being the best at what they do locally.

Johnsons Chartered Surveyors, an Evesham based lettings and property management firm, were given the title of the UK's most loved business it the national awards.

Businesses across the UK have been collecting reviews from customers throughout the year to compete for local and national awards as part of the campaign to find the most loved businesses in each category.

Speaking after the local awards evening, Tom Tarver, partner at Johnsons, said: "We were delighted to hear we'd been voted amongst the top three most loved businesses in Evesham, but the title of UK's most loved is a fantastic boost for our team, who certainly work hard to provide a friendly, professional and personal service."

And the company was also among the winners of local prizes, which recognised excellent customer service, at the annual BestOfEvesham awards evening, held at Evesham Rowing Club.

Other local businesses celebrating success as national category winners included Complete Spas, Bradfords Carpets and Beds, Evesham Tyre Centre and Daisy B. Nell Dress Hire.
