Hexham's Oscar nominees

The Countryside Alliance Awards, nicknamed the 'Rural Oscars', honour the skills, produce, tradition, enterprise and people who do outstanding work and make a difference in their local community, and I'm delighted to hear that two finalists at this years awards are based in the Hexham Constituency. The Blagdon Farm Shop in Seaton Burn is nominated in the local food/drink category, and in the butcher category WMH Farm Fresh Meats in Haydon Bridge is nominated. It's great to see local businesses recognised at a national level for the invaluable role they play in our rural community and I wish both businesses the best of luck when the winner of each category is announced in March.
