EPE wins at Home Hardware show
The awards were judged by an independent panel and presented by Home Hardware's executive chairman John Fewings.

The judges agreed that the EPE International stand was the best at the show, which was attended by 131 exhibitors, with excellent all round visual impact and colour coordination, well lit products and good use of point of sale.

EPE director Noel Pamment earned a cash prize of £100 and a framed certificate. Horwoods received the runners up prize of £50.

Mr Fewings said: "In this current climate, it is even more important that suppliers take a pride in their stands at our trade show, if they are to attract retailers to their stands. It is clear that retailers are drawn to well merchandised, clearly priced displays and this is reflected in increased sales."

The show also held a very successful prize draw, raising £500 for Children's Hospice South West. First prize went to Judith Franklin from W Frost & Co of Bridport, who won an iPod Touch.

With a hung parliament, unpopular Conservative/DUP alliance, and maybe even another vote on the cards - what is your biggest worry after the fall-out of the election?
