FARM SHOP & DELI AWARDS 2020 – CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OUR WINNERS!
Chair of Judges, Nigel Barden, commented on the 2020 awards: “It was definitely worth battling floods and storms in the first part of the year, travelling the length and breadth of the UK, in tandem with fellow judge, Elaine Lemm, as we secret shopped some of the finest retailers in the land, many of whom are centres of their communities. We witnessed this particularly in the Local Shop & Village Store category, which illustrated how crucial such businesses are to people of all ages, as they go way beyond simply selling produce. They’re the nerve centres of their areas, provide key links to their customers."
