A MORPETH business wrapped up its second accolade in the space of a few months thanks to further support from customers.

Following a public vote for the 2013 Craft Business Magazine Awards, Treacle Wool Shop in Chantry Place received the Highly Commended Independent Retailer in the UK title.

Earlier this year, it won a British Craft Award after getting the largest tally in the Best North East Knitting Retailer category.

Owner Kym Hewison said: “As the award is based on a public vote, I received a call out of the blue and I was very thrilled.

“Our success shows how much customers like coming here and that we must be doing something right.”
