Knutsford Town Council’s town centre manager, Sandra Curties, nominated Peter in July in recognition of his personal drive, enthusiasm and energy; not just for his own business but for Knutsford town in general and his charity efforts for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Peter, founder and owner of Pulse of Perfumery, said: “This nomination has come completely out of the blue. I am overwhelmed and would like to thank Sandra and Knutsford Town Council for the nomination and for their belief in our small, independent businesses.
We love living and working in Knutsford and to be shortlisted for this national award is the icing the cake”.
An independent judging panel will review the High Street Hero entries to select the winners.
All those shortlisted will be invited to an awards ceremony in Edinburgh in November where the winners will be announced.
