The Flavours of Herriot Country Awards 2022

Celebrating the Best in Food & Drink throughout Herriot Country

THE WINNERS OF THE FLAVOURS OF HERRIOT COUNTRY AWARDS 2022

Here we are, Celebrating together, at long last!

It was an emotionally charged Flavours of Herriot Country awards event this year, which was held at Solberge Hall on Monday 9 May. It summed up just what these awards mean to everyone, and that there was more to the day than being finalists and winning awards.

It was about celebrating having survived these unprecedented couple of years, struggling to stay open, keep on staff, and earning enough to cover all the costs of running these remarkable businesses. A special day for us all to gather together again, at last!

The awards itself gave people those moments to realise they’d actually made it, and survived the toughest of times, and here they were, being recognised for their incredible achievements over the last couple years, with a room full of incredibly resolute finalists and winners.

Elly Fiorentini our brilliant presenter from BBC Radio York brought such good cheer to the day, and through chatting to each of our winners, brought out the many uplifting stories, and some sad ones, and rounded everyone with her great warmth, empathy and great humour.

We had such tremendous backing and goodwill from our main supporters, Hambleton District Council, and North Yorkshire County Council, and from all of our sponsors. And such strong support from our media partners, The Darlington & Stockton Times.

It was a joy to be at Solberge Hall Hotel, Northallerton, our hosts for the day, in the beautiful late spring sunshine, with stunning views, putting us all in an uplifting and celebratory mood for the awards event ahead.

We appreciate, and thank you all, for your generous contribution towards Herriot Hospice Homecare, our nominated charity. We held a table top prize draw to win some beautiful hampers, and between us we raised the incredible amount of £1,182.37

We do hope you’ll go ahead and plan some great days out visiting our worthy winners, who are situated across Richmondshire and Hambleton, covering our wonderful Herriot Country.
