As she stands outside the shop at Cargo in Wapping Wharf, she is congratulated on her award by several passers-by and even by a friend driving along Museum Street who pulls up in his van.
It’s clear that Rosie has had a huge amount of support from the local Bristol community since she first started selling cheese from a trestle table in one corner of Hart’s Bakery in 2013.
That was the first step of a journey that later saw her open a pop-up shop on St Nicholas Street during Christmas 2015, followed by a permanent shop in the same location and from the beginning of this year a shop in a converted shipping container within Cargo.
“It’s wonderful,” Rosie said about her award. “In all honesty, I didn’t expect to win in the slightest. Just getting through the public voting stage to be among the finalists was amazing.”
EatDrink24/7 panelist Rosie added: “The huge amount of support I have received has made a huge impact and has been quite humbling, as well as lifting me with renewed enthusiasm.”
