Search for all biz bright and beautiful
THE search is on for the best businesses in the countryside.
Nominations are now open for the Rural Oscars, organised by the Countryside Alliance.
Judges will be looking for evidence of great produce, customer service and innovation and stories of how businesses serve their communities.
Categories include local food and drink, village shop and post office, butcher, rural enterprise and pub.
Countryside Alliance Awards Director Sarah Lee said: “I urge everyone who wants to support their local businesses and communities to nominate them and give them the boost they so richly deserve.”
Nominations close on December 9, with the regional winners announced in May next year with the final taking place the following month.
