We operate two farm shops, each with a 90-seater café, generating annual sales of £4m and have created over 60 new jobs in rural West Berkshire. At the Hungerford site, we planted in 2011 an 11-acre vineyard producing award-winning English Sparkling wine (www.alderridge.co.uk).
What we love about Newbury West Berkshire.
It offers so much: good travel communications, only 1 hour from London and close to Heathrow, business and retail parks; racecourse, showground, theatre, cinema, arts venues, museum, library, international music festival, the Kennet & Avon Canal, beautiful countryside and villages, good schools and its own College, new hospital, top-class hotels and golf courses.
Why we're involved in the Newbury West Berkshire Project.
As a local resident, charity trustee and business owner for the past 35 years, I was delighted to be asked to be the inaugural Chairman of the Newbury West Berkshire Economic Development Company.
