Bishopston business women Sarah Thorp, owner of Room 212 on Gloucester Road has been gaining some amazing awards and prizes over the past month.  

She has been nominated as Local Legend for national organisation Revive and Thrive, a national network connecting people, places and traders to work together to make places better. Sarah has put a lot of work into running the events and activities at Glos Rd Central, such as the pavement planters and Mayfest. 

In March Sarah was surprised to receive a phone call from the Revive and Thrive judges to say that she had won three of the top prizes, beating Local Legends from around the country.  

Last month Sarah was a finalist in the Bristol Life Awards Creative section and attended a glittering night with 600 people at a uber glam marquee on the Harbourside.

She is also a finalist for the Small Awards and in the High Street Hero Best High Street Business category.  

And to top this all off, Sarah has won the award of Best Art and Craft Gallery and Shop UK by Worldwide Business Review. Amazingly they have decided that Room 212 is one of the best businesses in the country!
