June Lomax, butcher development manager with QMS, said: "I am delighted that The Scotch Butchers Club is supporting the Butcher's Shop of the Year Awards 2006. This initiative encourages shop standards to rise all round the country, and I hope many shops will enter. I look forward to congratulating the Scottish winner."

An overall winner will be decided on 7 November at Claridges, London, from seven categories (see box below) and named the UK's Butcher's Shop of the Year 2006.
