A PET shop in Gosport emerged victorious at a national award ceremony.

Natural Pet Pantry, in Priddy’s Hard, Gosport, was named Retailer of the Year 2012 at the Pet Industry Awards, held in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

The shop specialises in giving owners nutritional diets for dogs and other pets.

Kelly Newbold, owner of the shop, said: ‘All the hard work has paid off in the end, we didn’t think we were going to win.’

She has even had a treat named after her, when the dog food manufacturer Hungry Hector decided to brand a new treat Kelly’s Delight.
