Get nominating for ‘Rural Oscars’

Celebrating rural Britain, the eighth annual Countryside Alliance Awards are now open to public nomination, and Mark Reckless 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.

Mark Reckless MP commented:

“These Awards are an excellent way to promote the local businessmen and women who are working hard to keep rural Britain ticking. 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. Let’s see if we can bring a British title home and tell a positive story about Rochester and Strood.”

The Awards run across the following categories:

  1. Local food Award
  2. Daily Telegraph Village shop/Post Office award
  3. Enterprise Award
  4. Butcher Award
  5. Start-up Award *New* for 2012 – for businesses who have been trading less than 18 months.

Nomination are open online at until 29th October 2012.
