“We’re well placed to offer the support they need as our team is highly experienced, helping many rural businesses thrive over the years.
“This level of service can be crucial for their survival and success – which in turn helps to support the wider rural economy and the local community, so we’re proud for our work to be recognised.
“Thank you to The Rural Business Awards for our nomination, and good luck to all the finalists!”
