Karen Lumley, MP for Redditch County, has today (27 February 2017) congratulated local butcher Pete the Meat who has scooped the Midlands winner in the Butcher category of the Countryside Alliance Awards. The awards celebrate those businesses and groups working hard to keep rural life ticking. The competition received over 7,500 nominations across five categories.
The Astwood Bank butcher has been a familiar fixture in Redditch for years and is now in contention to win the national award after beating other butchers in the high stakes competition. The judges commended the excellent customer service and charitable work at the high street favourite.
Karen commented: "Pete the Meat is a well-loved part of the community and so I am really proud of their success at the Countryside Alliance Awards. It's a reflection of their hard work as a business and their championing of the rural economy.
"I wish them the best of luck in the national competition – I know their meat and service is a cut above the rest."
