Nominate a business for rural Oscars
Last updated at 14:48, Wednesday, 28 August 2013
Nominations have opened for the annual Countryside Alliance Awards, dubbed the ‘rural Oscars’.
Cumbria did particularly well last year with three successes in the North West regional heat.
The Watermill at Little Salkeld, which makes organic flour, took the ‘enterprise’ section. The Llama Karma Kafe at Brougham, near Penrith, triumphed in the ‘start-up’ category, while the Hawkshead Relish Company won the ‘local food’ section.
They are voted for by the public. Nominations can be made at www.countryside-alliance.org.uk until November 1.
The North West winners will be announced at an event near Clitheroe in February ahead of the national final at the Houses of Parliament in April.
