Nominate your countryside champion

Nominations are now open for the Countryside Alliance Awards, better known as the ‘Rural Oscars’! There are five categories- local food/drink, village shop/post office, butcher, rural enterprise and pub-, with nine regional champions from each category invited to Parliament for the national finals in June 2019. Following the fantastic success of the Blagdon Farm Shop last year, winner of the Game Champion Award, I would definitely encourage you to nominate the outstanding rural retailers in your local community!
