Countryside Alliance Awards - celebrating rural Britain

Nominations are now open for the annual Countryside Alliance Awards.

This is a chance to recognise the people and businesses - like SW Doughty butchers in Doddington, which has won three awards in previous years - that make Kent’s rural community thrive. These awards are a great way to promote our farming, small businesses, traditional skills and delicious produce.

The categories are:


  •        Local food award
  •        Village shop/Post Office award
  •        Butcher award
  •        Rural tourism enterprise award
