The annual Countryside Alliance Awards are now open to public nomination, and Huw Merriman MP is urging the local community to get nominating

The Countryside Alliance Awards, nicknamed the ‘Rural Oscars’, were borne of a need to support and promote rural communities. They celebrate people going the extra mile to ensure that rural Britain’s food and farming industry, small businesses, traditional skills, forward-thinking enterprises and, most of all, its people, can flourish.

“These awards are an excellent way to promote the local community who are working hard to keep rural Britain thriving. Our local produce is second to none and there are many businesses worthy of national recognition, so please get involved and nominate today. Let’s see if we can bring a British title home and tell another positive story about the wonderful businesses operating across the 200 square miles of Bexhill and Battle constituency.”

The Awards run across the following categories:

  1. Local Food Award
  2. Village shop/ Post Office Award
  3. Rural Enterprise Award
  4. Butcher Award
  5. Rural Pub Award
  6. Game Champion
  7. Clarissa Dickson Wright Award
