Forest and Beach announced as National Winner at the Rural Business Awards Final

We were delighted to win a National Award at the Rural Business Awards National Final which took place at Chateau Impney, Droitwich on 28th February 2019. After winning the South West regional final we then represented the South West and South Hams at the National Finals.

The Awards celebrate all types of rural businesses and Forest and Beach won in the Best Outdoor Recreation or Outdoor Pursuits business. Pete Moore Director stated ‘This is a huge achievement for our small company, I gave up a teaching job 5 years ago after 18 years in the classroom to set up FaB along with my wife Andrea who is also a teacher. For Forest and Beach to win this accolade is just unbelievable, we were really thrilled just to have been shortlisted for the awards but to have then won the South West region and go on to become the National Champion in our category is just amazing. We were by far the smallest company in our category, up against some fantastic businesses’.

Andrea Moore, Director stated ‘The National Final was a lovely evening with Jules Hudson presenter of Escape to the Country and Countryfile comparing. It was lovely to see the all the varied UK rural businesses at the finals. We were really not expecting to win at all and it was amazing when FaB was called out as the National winner. The support and well wishing on our social media channels has been huge and we can’t thank our supporters enough. We knew we were representing Devon and the South Hams and in the end we were the only winners from Devon.’

Pete added, ‘we are looking forward to the next few years as we have some exciting plans for Forest and Beach.’
