If you or someone you know, under the age of 40, is running a rural business in Pembrokeshire, then the FUW Countryside Business Award could be just the thing for you.

Whether you farm in your own right or provide a service to the agricultural sector, run a cake making business, electrical or plumbing services, crafts, music teaching or food processing, you could be eligible for the award.

The individual must be 40 or under on January 1, 2019, and be actively involved in a business based in rural Pembrokeshire. The deadline for entries is Friday, May 31.

A £200 cash prize, perpetual trophy and a year’s free membership will be awarded to the winner.

“There are a host of fantastic businesses in rural Pembrokeshire who all do a great job in keeping the wheel of our rural economy turning. With the award we want to recognise the fantastic work our young people do to keep the rural areas of Pembrokeshire vibrant and economically active places.

“I am really looking forward to receive entries for this award, so if you think your business stands out from the crowd or you know someone who runs a top rural business then get in touch with us to put them forward. But please check with them before sending in the nomination that they are happy for you to do so,” said FUW Pembrokeshire CEO Rebecca Voyle.
