West Berkshire's beautiful countryside captured

NEWBURY MP Richard Benyon is urging people to nominate West Berkshire businesses for a ‘Rural Oscar’ in the annual Countryside Alliance Awards, which celebrate and promote rural businesses.

There are four categories – local food award, village shop/post office award, farm enterprise award and the rural tourism enterprise award.

Mr Benyon said: “Vicars Game in Ashampstead was a worthy finalist from this area in the past and it would be great to see more winners from West Berkshire.

“I would encourage everyone to go online at and nominate someone today.”

Nominations close on Friday next week.
