We are delighted to be a South East finalist in the Rural Business Awards nominated within the ‘Outstanding Rural Diversification Project’ category. It’s such a great feeling to be recognised for the work we’ve done to grow and diversify the business in recent years, especially our focus on new and innovative events; pop-up cinemas, food festivals, wild yoga, workshops etc etc!!
What are the Rural Business Awards?
The Rural Business Awards were established in late 2014 by Jemma Clifford and Anna Price – two business owners who work in rural Leicestershire. The first Awards were presented in October 2015 and the RBAs are now entering their 4th year.
The aim of the awards has not changed over the years and it aims to give recognition to businesses operating right across the Rural sector, to acknowledge the breadth and depth of opportunity presented by the Great British countryside, as well as to celebrate the achievements of our rural businesses, from engineering through to artisan food producers and professional services organisations.
The thirteen award categories are decided by an independent panel of judges drawn from the rural business sector, official agencies and rural charitable organisations. The aim is to grow The Rural Business Awards to become the UK’s most prestigious and respected awards for rural businesses and to develop a strong network and community of rural business owners.
Fingers crossed for the award ceremony in October where we will find out the winner in our region.
