Businesses on awards shortlist


Two businesses in the Boston area have been shortlisted in this year’s Select Lincolnshire, Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards.

The event is held annually by the Select Lincolnshire brand to celebrate food and farming in Lincolnshire.

This year, in the Boston area, it has seen nods for Manor Farm, in Swineshead, for the People’s Choice Award, and Elms Farm Cottages, in Hubbert’s Bridge, for the Caterer/Venue of the Year and Self-Caterer of the Year honours.

Gillian Richardson, business development manager for Select Lincolnshire, said the standard of entries this year was ‘exceptionally high’.

She added: “Each year, we look forward to organising this event, and celebrating the work of local businesses who go from strength to strength in producing high-quality food and drink.

“Judging is always a challenge because every business has something strong and unique to offer, and there are so many great businesses in Lincolnshire.”

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at Lincoln Minster School on Tuesday.
