Barkers of Huby was voted winner of the Community Contribution Award in the annual Hambleton Council Business Awards last night. It was a popular category with 9 entries from across Hambleton but having made it to the final 3, it was wonderful to hear we had won. Adrienne Micklethwaite and Sandra Howland - who volunteer extensivly in the shop - accompanied Denise to the awards in Northallerton last night.
A short video was shown of all the finalists, and Denise explained that she had nominated Barkers and the wider commnunity because of the way they had come together to save the shop and post office for years to come.
We now have a lovely granite plaque on display in the shop.
