MALLUSK man Michael Martin has been hailed a ‘Rural Hero’ at the prestigious Countryside Alliance Awards in London.

Michael, who runs the Six Mile Water Trust, recently attended the awards finals at the House of Commons and was delighted to receive a plaque and certificate from Countryside Alliance Chairman, Kate Hoey MP.

The awards, nicknamed the ‘Rural Oscars’, have been running for seven years and were set up to celebrate the characters, produce, traditions and enterprise of the countryside through the people who work so hard to make it tick. Michael was nominated in the Rural Hero category which honours those doing something heroic for the countryside, often unsung.
