The Northumberland Honey and Sovereign Nectar Meadery in Haltwhistle has been given a “Highly Commended” as a new business by the Countryside Alliance.
Now, the Northumberland Honey Company has been deemed a HIGHLY COMMENDED business in the “Local Food” category. The Countryside Alliance received over 7,500 nominations in the five categories this year, so their success is testament to their tremendous contribution to our local community.
On hearing this news, I went, with local councillor Ian Hutchinson, to visit the Northumberland Honey Company (http://www.northumberlandhoney.co.uk/) and met with Luke and Suzie on Friday 24 February. They are an incredibly pleasant couple with a brilliant business. I hope that everyone will flock to Haltwhistle, experience something new and support one of the many fantastic local businesses in our constituency.
The Rural Oscars were devised by the Countryside Alliance as a way of celebrating our communities, skills, and produce through those who work so hard to keep rural life ticking. Regional winners have now been announced: https://countrysideallianceawards.org.uk/caa/article/2016-rural-oscars-regional-champions-for-the-north.
