There is something so special about this time of year. September days can still be really warm while the evenings have a real crispness that comes as the seasons begin to blend.
The thing I look forward to all year though is the blooming of the Heather as it covers the moors and hills of the Peak District. The colour creeps across the landscape in August and brings the hills & peaks alive with a wash of purple shades by September.
So today we found out we are finalist in this year Rural Business Awards! We couldn't be more thrilled to have been recognised. We have made the finalists list for the Midlands region for "Best Rural Retail Business" . The Awards, which are run in partnership with Amazon , have 13 categories which recognise rural business from every sector including business diversification, manufacturing, tourism, food, drink, retail, creative, education & social enterprise.
