Julian has welcomed the owners of Yorkshire’s rural champions in the Village Shop / Post Office category to Westminster.

Dale Stores in Birstwith was given the title in the Countryside Alliance Awards after being nominated by members of their local community.

The shop is run by Andrea and Matthew Walwyn who came to the event in the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday (7 March).

Julian Smith said:

“Shops like Dale Stores are the lifeblood of communities across my constituency so I was pleased to be able to congratulate Andrea and Matthew on their achievement in winning this award.

“I know that those who nominated them praised their commitment to local residents and local produce and the entire community will be proud of the victory.”
