Two businesses near Sleaford have been nominated for this year’s Select Lincolnshire, Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards.

The Manor House Stables, in Martin, is nominated for Educational Establishment of the Year and Self Caterer of the Year.

Ownsworth’s Rapeseed Oil, in Fulbeck, is nominated for Grower of the Year, Retailer of the Year, and Producer of the Year.

Last year, the Manor House Stables were shortlisted for Self-Catering of the Year and Teaching Establishment of the Year and Ownsworth’s Rapeseed Oil was shortlisted for Grower of the Year.

Gillian Richardson is business development manager for Select Lincolnshire.

She said: “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.”

“The standard of entries this year has been exceptionally high, and all from such well deserving food, drink and hospitality businesses across the county.”

“Judging is always a challenge, because every business has something strong and unique to offer, and there are so many great businesses in Lincolnshire.”

Gillian added: “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.”

The ceremony will be held at Lincoln Minster School on Tuesday, and attendees can enjoy a drinks reception followed by a three-course meal.
