Clarissa_180hiThe Countryside Alliance has announced that an inaugural Clarissa Dickson Wright Award will be presented at Parliament on Wednesday 30th April during the Countryside Alliance Awards reception. Clarissa had been a longstanding judge in the Awards, which are an annual celebration of UK produce and rural life. The UK finals will be held at Parliament on 30th April and will be attended by regional winners from across the UK, as well as supportive Parliamentarians. This Award, which was created in Clarissa’s name with her approval before her sad death in March, will be presented to her own criteria. The winner’s plaque, in claret and gold as chosen by Clarissa, will be announced by Countryside Alliance President and Clarissa’s friend Baroness Mallalieu. More will follow after the reception.
