Members of the Angus Conservative and Unionist Association have selected their Westminster candidate for the General Election in May 2015 - Mr Derek Wann from Arbroath.

Since his selection, Mr Wann has visited a newly opened local business in his home town of Arbroath, Cherished Bride, as is aiming to launch a new competition called ‘Your Favourite Local Retailer’.

Mr Wann explained: “We will be visiting other local independent retailers throughout Angus in the coming weeks to set up a competition for ‘Your Favourite Local Retailer’.

“Customers will be able to vote for their favourite and the business with most votes will win £100.

“I want to encourage small independent retailers throughout Angus and highlight the importance of these type of business’s to our town centres and high streets, long gone are the days when larger retailers will be present on our streets, and we must ensure local retailers survive and thrive.”
