The Progressive Preschool Awards is a cross-category industry award that highlights the dynamism and creativity found in the preschool industry.

The awards have 20 different categories that cover retail, product and special awards. Last year’s winners include John Lewis, Argos and Mothercare and to their surprise, Popsy & Peanut, a baby and children clothing shop in our Northamptonshire shopping village, has been selected as a finalist in the 2017 ‘Best Independent Apparel Retailer’ category!

Their nomination is extremely well-deserved and you can see just how happy they were when they heard the news!

The award show will take place on Thursday 9th November 2017, at The Dorchester Hotel in London. Everyone here at Heart of the Shires wishes them the best of luck on the day.

Popsy & Peanut has been at Heart of the Shires for one year now and is a much-loved shop for parents and little ones visiting. They have a range of high-quality items, including organic cotton and fair trade, perfect for new babies, birthdays and other special occasions. As well as children’s clothing, they are the go-to shop for toys and gifts.

Why not come in and have a look around for yourself? All of our shops are open 10am-5pm daily and we have free parking.
