The Annual Countryside Alliance Awards


The annual Countryside Alliance Awards are now open to public nomination, local MP- Nigel Adams-  is urging the local community to get nominating!

The Countryside Alliance Awards, also referred to as the ‘Rural Oscars’, are designed 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.

Speaking on this local MP- Nigel Adams- said: “These awards are an excellent way to promote the local businessmen and women who are working hard to keep rural Britain thriving. Our local produce is second to none and there are many community heroes and businesses worthy of national recognition, so please get involved and nominate today. I was delighted to meet with the team from Church Fenton Community Shop when they visited Parliament as Regional Finalists for the Awards Ceremony last year. It would be fantastic to welcome more groups from Selby & Ainsty this time!”

The Awards run across the following categories:

  • Local Food Award
  • Village shop/ Post Office Award
  • Rural Enterprise Award
  • Butcher Award
  • Rural Pub Award

Nominations open now and close on 9th December 2018 with regional champions announced in May 2019. Then, the finals held in June 2019 at the House of Lords.
