The Countryside Alliance Awards, known as “The Rural Oscars” took place at the Welsh Assembly in April and, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Awards, a special “Champion of Champions” event was held. The winners were voted for in a public vote with over 6,000 votes being polled.
Countryside Alliance Director for Wales, Rachel Evans, presented The Champion of Champions award to butcher, Andrew J Rees & Sons of Narberth who supplies the bacon, sausages and other meat products to Pembrokeshire Farm B & B.
On presenting the prize she said: “The Champion of Champions’ Award goes to first and foremost an outstanding butcher, passionate about supporting the local farming community and ensuring customers have the absolute best quality meat with low food miles. He is also at the heart of this market town’s life and is, as the Telegraph said when he first won, “prepared to trudge that extra wet Welsh mile” for his customers. His support for local food producers, schools, charities and his commitment to sustaining rural community life makes him a worthy winner. Voted in by his customers from far and wide, the winner is Andrew J Rees & Sons of Narberth”
