Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -


THE 2016 Coun­try­side Al­liance Awards, the nick­named the “Ru­ral Os­cars”, have opened to pub­lic nom­i­na­tion at www.coun­tryside­al­ and in­vite con­tri­bu­tions across four cat­e­gories.

The award cat­e­gories are: Lo­cal Food & Drink; Vil­lage Shop/ Post Of­fice; Tourism En­ter­prise; Farm En­ter­prise (new in 2016).

The Ru­ral Os­cars recog­nise hard work­ing ru­ral busi­ness­men and women and those who rou­tinely go the ex­tra mile for their com­mu­nity or help to pre­serve and pro­tect ru­ral life.

The Awards have be­come the de­fin­i­tive ru­ral award to win be­cause they cel­e­brate the char­ac­ters be­hind the busi­ness and the ef­forts they go to, not just the busi­ness it­self. Our Awards cel­e­brate the un­sung heroes of the coun­try­side and the work they do.

The Awards in­vite nom­i­na­tions across four cat­e­gories. Win­ners will be an­nounced at a Par­lia­men­tary re­cep­tion in March 2017 which will be sup­ported by cross party Par­lia­men­tar­i­ans.
