A THIRSK business has won a national award.

Green’s Farm Supplies has been named as the 2017 Independent Store of the Year in the national SQP Awards which were announced at an awards ceremony in the Conrad London, St James hotel.

The annual awards, organised by the OvertheCounter magazine and Lewis Business Media, recognise excellence and best practice in the animal health and welfare industry.

Simon King, magazine editor, congratulated Green’s Farm Supplies who, he said, were deserved winners. "Once again these awards have highlighted the breadth and depth of talent, drive and ambition among animal health advisers," he said.

John Lewis, head judge, said: "The winners have done themselves proud. In some categories, there were very fine margins between the winners and those shortlisted."
