Shortlist for the Select Lincolnshire Awards has been announced

This year’s shortlisted businesses have been announced for the Select Lincolnshire, Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards 2016, taking place on the evening of Tuesday 11 October.

The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony held at the popular Lincoln Minster School. An inviting drinks reception will kick start the evening, followed by a tasty three course meal which has all been locally sourced and kindly provided by our members, and of course, the award ceremony itself.

“The standard of entries this year has been exceptionally high, and all from such well deserving food, drink and hospitality businesses across the county”, said Gillian Richardson, Business Development Manager for Select Lincolnshire.

“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.

“One of the most competitive categories this year is The People’s Choice Award which has been voted for by the public, and this year’s bash is sure to be an interesting and entertaining one, and wouldn’t be possible without the support of Lincolnshire Co-operative who are sponsoring this year”.

“There was an opportunity for those who voted this year to win one of five Lincolnshire cookbooks, each worth £14.95 and we look forward to announcing those winners in due course. As such, we would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who voted this year”.

“We want to wish everyone who entered for this year’s awards the very best of luck, and we look forward to catching up on the night. For everyone who couldn’t make it, you will be able to keep up to date on the evening through our live tweets using the hashtag #LFDA16”.
