STAFF at a Weymouth store are celebrating after being handed an award for Favourite Toy Shop by a family focused magazine.

Howley’s Toymaster in Frederick Place was given the award for the Dorset region by the Primary Times, a free magazine informing parents and carers about forthcoming events, courses, attractions and days out for their children.

The magazine is distributed to over 90 per cent of primary schools across Dorset and has held awards which recognise favourable, local family-friendly places and people across the UK for the last three years.

Store manager Natasha Brittain said: “It’s a fantastic achievement. I’m really pleased for Howleys and all the staff here are too.”
