Congratulations to the Gently Elephant team, who have won the 2013 Lewisham Business Award for Best New Business. The Brockley Road children's shoes and gifts retailers, who opened in May 2012, were presented with their certificate by Mayor Bullock this afternoon.

The shop has added to the vitality of our high street and now attracts regular customers from as far afield as Bromley, East Dulwich and Greenwich, helping to increase local footfall for the benefit of other businesses.

The award will go in their trophy cabinet, together with the 2012 Brockley Central Best Newcomer Award.
