Two Norfolk businesses are celebrating after being listed as finalists in the Countryside Alliance Awards, ‘The Rural Oscars’. Friends Crawford White, of G. F. White Butchers in Aylsham, and Jason Borthwick, of Dalegate Market in Burnham Deepdale, have won awards in the past, but to be finalists in the hotly contested national awards is superb news. “We’ve won the regional butcher award in the past, but to be up for the national award is great. Fingers crossed we’ll be celebrating with Jason and the Dalegate Market team in April, when we all attend the awards ceremony at Westminster.” Said Crawford.
