The ‘Rural Oscars’ Are Back

Do you know of a business worthy of winning a Rural Oscar? A retailer, perhaps, who defies the doom and gloom tales of rural decline and brightens up your community? If so, now is your chance to sing their praises by voting for them in the Countryside Alliance Rural Awards.

Nicknamed the ‘Rural Oscars’, the 13th annual awards will once again give farmers, butchers, village shops and small businesses a platform from which to tell their stories, and they will need the support of their customers to help propel them to the top prize. A new addition this year is the Best British Pub Award.

If you know of a local that supports regional produce and is central to your community, this is your chance to shout about it. Nominations close on 13 November. Regional champions will be announced in March 2018, with Welsh businesses attending a special reception at the Welsh Assembly in Cardiff. The regional champions then advance to the British final, which will be held in April 2018 at the House of Lords.

Visit bit.ly/ruraloscars to nominate your favourites.

Coffee and croissants in a buzzing local deli on a lazy Saturday morning give way to the sights and sounds of the weekend street market. A stroll through a secluded square leads to a chance find in a neighbourhood art gallery. A long lunch follows in an old, wooden-timbered pub before a wander through a centuries-old churchyard and a scour of the blue badges showcasing famous former residents. Finally, a spot of retail therapy across a clutch of smart boutiques then it’s back to unload and unwind in the sanctuary of your chic hotel…. bliss.
