Pembrokeshire butcher, Andrew J Rees & Sons in Narberth, has been nominated for The Countryside Alliance Champion of Champions’ Award.
Andrew Rees won best traditional shop for both Wales and the UK back in 2007. Only 3 Welsh businesses have won the UK Award. He supplies locally produced meat and fish of outstanding quality.
The Countryside Alliance Awards celebrate rural life, produce and communities. Often nicknamed “The Rural Oscars”, these awards are highly coveted. The Countryside Alliance is the leading voice of rural Britain and their Awards complement their wide ranging support and promotion of rural life.
The bustling town of Narberth is renowned for its wonderful individual shops and thriving high street. As well as butchers, delis, cheese shops, chocolate shops, cake shops, greengrocers, etc. it has a wealth of boutiques, present shops, galleries, antique shops, cafes and restaurants and attracts shoppers from all over the UK. The secret of its success in this age of dying town centres has been its policy, until now, of banning chain stores and supermarkets from the town; allowing individual shops to flourish. Sadly short sighted local councilors have just agreed to allow a Sainsbury’s local into the town. Let us hope this is not just the beginning of the rot setting in.
