The Awards acknowledge the breadth and depth of opportunity presented by the Great British countryside, as well as celebrating the achievements of rural businesses.
Longniddry based Scene & Herd Ltd, which was set up in 2009 by former NFU Scotland Communications Manager Anna Davies, and which now operates with two Directors and six specialist consultants, has been shortlisted in the categories ‘Best Rural Creative or Media Based Business’ and ‘Best Rural Professional Services Business’.
Director Anna Davies commented:
“We are thrilled to be shortlisted in two categories within these prestigious awards and are very much looking forward to finding out the results in October. It is always rewarding to have your passion and hard work recognised, especially as these particular awards are organised and judged by people who truly understand the rural sector across the UK.”
Fellow Director, Ross Montague, who farms in the Scottish Borders, added:
“We work with some fantastic clients, building their reputation and helping them grow. We are the only Scottish organisation in the ‘Best Rural Professional Services Business’ category, and, we believe, one of only two Scotland based businesses shortlisted across all categories of these prestigious awards! We are exceedingly proud to be finalists alongside some very highly regarded organisations from across Britain.”
“Over the last 12 months, our turnover has more than doubled as we aim to grow our impact in the sector, as well as the benefits we can deliver to clients, and so we are delighted to have had our efforts rewarded.”
The winners of the Rural Business Awards will be announced at a ceremony on 13th October at The Belfry Resort & Spa, Warwickshire.
