Thank you to everyone who nominated in the Countryside Alliance Awards. We really appreciate the time and effort you took to tell us about your favourite rural businesses. We know how much it means to those businesses who are nominated by their loyal customers. 

With over 17,000 nominations it has been our most successful year ever, which made shortlisting an impossible task. It took days to read every nomination and whittle them down to our Regional Finalists 2019 but we are pleased to say we have done it! Please meet our 2019 Countryside Alliance Regional Finalists below.
