We were pleased that so many finalists were able to attend the awards ceremony for the 2017 Rural Business Awards. We all made the most of the hospitality of Denbies Wine Estate, sampling their excellent wine throughout the evening.
We were proud that entries doubled from 2016 and we made some fantastic new connections – this continues to demonstrate that the success of this Awards programme is not simply down to our hard work and determination but is very much about teamwork – about people working together to build something that is of benefit to all of us who operate rural businesses.
The awards night was compered for the first time by Jules Hudson and we had speeches from our sponsors, Amazon and CLA. And who could forget the amazing perfomance by Faith Tucker!
Have a look at our deserving winners for 2017.
