After two years when the Buckingham Society Buckingham Trader of the Year shield was awarded to all Buckingham Traders to recognise the difficult time they had during the Covid pandemic, it was back to normal for 2022. Members of the Society were asked to nominate their favourite trader from all of the shops, cafés, restaurants, market traders in Buckingham – a very difficult choice from such a large number of excellent traders.
Unsurprisingly there was a wide range of nominations, and after a very close vote, the eventual winners were Smith and Clay, Buckingham’s town centre butcher and delicatessen. The award was given to them for providing outstanding service, quality produce and helping to keep Buckingham a great place to live.

The presentation took place in Bourton Park on Celebrate Buckingham Day and Fallon and Pat, managers respectively of the delicatessen and butchery sides of the business, were on hand to receive the winner’s shield and certificate on behalf of everybody connected with Smith and Clay. Congratulations to them all.
