Hoole is currently topping the table in a national competition to find Britain’s best high street.
The neighbourhood has been recognised as one of the country’s best high streets after being shortlisted in the third annual Great British High Street Awards.
Faulkner Street and Charles Street were crowned Best Newcomer – a category which was created especially for them – in 2015, and this year Hoole is hoping to scoop Best Local Centre.
Now, over a week into the public vote, a ranking release has revealed Faulkner Street is riding high in first place in its category.
It is currently ranked ahead of The Parade in Claygate and The Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells, also competing in the Best Local Centre category.
With the public vote making up half of the final decision, the team behind Hoole’s entry, Notting Hoole, are urging local people to get behind their bid for glory.
High Streets Minister Andrew Percy said: “Over 100,000 votes have been cast in the competition so far, proving that people are passionate about their high streets up and down the country.
“Hoole did fantastically well to make it into the final three, but now every vote counts and they need an extra push to get them the title of Britain’s best high street.”
The awards celebrate the great work being done to revive, adapt and diversify the nation’s high streets.
The winner will receive a share of a prize pot worth £100,000 and expert training from Google’s digital taskforce for shops, bars and restaurants.
To boost social media skills, the winner will also be awarded a trip to Twitter UK’s London office.
