IT is exciting times ahead for the women behind a local gift card scheme as they get set to launch in Kendal in the Lake District.

Coined by Bishopston residents Anne-Louise Perez and Imogen McIntosh almost two years ago, YourStreet Ltd – the UK's first ever gift card for independent retailers in the UK – has proved a popular present idea with folk across Bristol and further afield.

The pair said: “This is great as it hails the start of our plan to take YourStreet nationwide. Our vision is for YourStreet to be in towns across the UK and accepted in all the fabulous independent local shops, cafes, salons and services out there. So Keep watching, because we're just getting started.”

The award-winning card, which is available to purchases online as well as in shops, is redeemable in many independent stores across Bristol and Frome.
