Roaming Roosters want your votes


Higham-based business Roaming Roosters needs help from East Lancashire in their bid to offer a free educational facility for their customers.

The sustainable food business has been shortlisted in the Made in Britain category in the O2 Smarta 100 award; competing against 10 other businesses across the UK.

If they win their category they get £1,000, but if they win the whole competition they receive £10,000, with which they want to create a rare breed knowledge trail for their customers – but it relies wholly on public votes.

Simon Mellin, co-owner of Roaming Roosters, said: “We’re honoured to be shortlisted in this prestigious award which celebrates British food and drink. We’ve considered the idea of an educational programme for some time, so winning this money would be a great way to expand and create a visual, interactive experience for our customers.”
