Local businesses- use them or lose them!

It was great to be able to pop by and meet Tom Stephenson at WMH Farm Fresh Meats in Haydon Bridge and do my meat shopping. The business is shortlisted in the butchers’ category at the Countryside Alliance Awards, also known as the Rural Oscars. The northern winners in each category will be announced soon, with the winners going through to the national final in London, which has the Environment Secretary Michael Gove as one of its judges. WMH Farm Fresh Meats gets all of its meats from local farms, so it is a fantastic example of our brilliant local businesses. It’s so important to support local businesses which are the lifeblood of our communities- use them or lose them.
