Nominations can be made at and the nomination deadline is 14th February. Winners will be announced and receive a special gift on 20th February.

In addition, a £50 ShopAppy voucher is up for grabs for customers who share a picture of their favourite local Didcot spot on social media using hashtags #DIDCOT #LoveLocalDay on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook so get snapping to be in with a chance of winning the prize.

Zororo Mubaya, managing director of Driving Miss Daisy Didcot, said: “We are delighted to be joining in the 2023 Love Local Day campaign as it will give us all a chance to show our love for the many local businesses that provide convenience and services locally for us all to enjoy.”

Dr Jackie Mulligan, Founder of ShopAppy who is leading the national Love Local Day campaign, adds: “It has been a challenging last decade none more so than this last year for our town centres and high streets, but we know there is tremendous love for local businesses in our communities. So we need to champion localism. Nominations will highlight the importance and positive impact these businesses have on the life of our communities and commercial hearts and how critical they are to our social and economic lives.”
