We are delighted to hear that Haslington’s Food & Farming Festival won first prize in the Telegraph “Bring Home the Harvest” competition.
12 of the organisers who worked hard to stage the event in the village on 5th and 6th October were invited to London this week to receive the trophy from the Rt Hon Owen Paterson.
They were given a tour of the Telegraph offices before going to the DEFRA building opposite the Houses of Parliament to receive the award.
