Farm shop project on award list

The Apley Farm Shop project just outside Bridgnorth has been shortlisted for the 2012 West Midlands Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Awards. The awards showcase the region’s major design projects and spotlight the most inspirational regional initiatives and developments.

“We are absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for this major RICS award,” said Apley Estate owner Lord Gavin Hamilton, who masterminded the building and development of the Apley Farm Shop complex.

“The conversion of the Victorian barns at Apley from derelict farm buildings to a vibrant shop specialising in local food, a café and indoor playbarn for children really impressed the judges.

“They were particularly impressed with the realised objective of employing local people and bringing the Apley Estate back to life as a key employer and part of the rural economy.”

Carol Boyd from RICS added: “Both the standard and volume of entrants for this award were extremely high this year and we congratulate Apley Farm Shop on being shortlisted.”

The awards ceremony will take place on May 4 at Edgbaston. The awards will be presented by TV sports presenter Mary Rhodes.
