The @BBCRadio4 #youandyours programme are seeking nominations for Best Local Retailer Award!

Radio 4’s daily consumer programme, You and Yours, are looking for nominations for the “You and Yours Best Local Retailer” Award.  It’s part of the BBC’s Food and Farming Awards, and judges include chefs Angela Hartnett, Valentine Warner and Arthur Potts Dawson.

BBC Food and Farming Awards: Best Local Retailer with You and Yours!

As I’m back on the show on Monday 2nd July, talking about Independent Retailer Month, the You and Yours team asked me to spread the word that they are looking for local food retailers selling great food, and making a contribution to their local community.  They are also looking for people doing innovative things to keep local food businesses relevant today.

If you are, or if you know of, a retailer who may fit the bill then make sure they take a look at this fantastic opportunity. All the details about the awards and how to nominate are here: BBC Food and Farming Awards – Best Local Retailer.   The closing date is midnight 12th August.

Good luck! :-)
