A PENRITH baby and children's wear shop has been named national Kite 'Shop of the Month'. 

Twinkletoes of Penrith, based in Devonshire Arcade, was named April Shop of the Month by clothing brand Kite. 

The store scooped the award due to its 'lively and imaginative summer window display, which has charmed both the local community and visitors'.

The display featured a collection of Kite clothing, set amidst an array of flowers and sunflowers with the display called a 'testament to the shop’s dedication to offering top-notch baby and children’s apparel infused with the unique spirit of Cumbria'.

Owners Andrew and Liane Dixon, a Penrith couple who have been at the helm since November 2011, welcomed the accolade.

They said: "We’re over the moon to be recognised with this award. It mirrors our commitment to sourcing distinctive, high-quality garments for our community.

"Our summer window was crafted with love, and it’s heartwarming to see the pleasure it brings to our patrons."
