Please vote for Newcomer of the Year 2014

Time to vote for the Best Newcomer 2014 - an award which celebrates the best new local high street business of the year.

As is tradition, only businesses in the Brockley, Telegraph Hill and Ladywell areas are counted - which is a mercy, because this is the year when Greater Brockley blew-up, with sour dough pizza restaurants in Honor Oak, controversial bars in Deptford, hipster nirvanas in Lewisham and themed cafes in New Cross. We also saw the welcome return of great pubs including the Montague Arms, the Waverley Arms and The Honor Oak. More on the Greater Brockley explosion in our round-up of the year, coming soon.

Even excluding the wider area, this has been another great year for local start-ups, with twelve new places shortlisted for the vote, serving a wide range of needs and constituencies.

Ladywell's entries on this year's list are new custodians of retiring local heroes, including a new deli, a new butcher, a new art shop and a new park cafe - but each is doing things in their own way and so earns their place on the list.

It's been another big year for local pop-ups, but only permanent new businesses earn a place on the shortlist. Some pop-ups, such as the new furniture shop on Tyrwhitt Road, may morph into permanent residents and earn a place on next year's list.

Here, in alphabetical order, are this year's candidates:

The Brockley Deli
The CCC Club
Cooper's Bakehouse
KR's Barber Station
The Larder
The LDN Beer Dispensary
The Proud Sow
10,000 Hands at Ladywell Fields
