The tables were turned on host Ian McMillan at the Dalesman Rural Awards yesterday when the poet, author and broadcaster was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award.  The award was handed over by Welcome to Yorkshire’s chief executive Gary Verity who himself received a surprise as he was named Yorkshireman of the Year for his outstanding charity work. Ilkley Brewery picked up the Entrepreneur of the Year award while Bivouac won the Rural Tourism Award. The Ashley Jackson Art Award went to Settle portrait artist Sam Dalby. More details will appear on our website during the day.
