Every purchase made using the new online shop raises valuable funds towards campaigns aimed at maintaining the values, social infrastructure and traditions of the countryside.

These campaigns help to promote and protect the rights of individuals taking part in country pursuits such as hunting, shooting and fishing.

?This has been a ghastly summer for countryside retailers, they have lost so many opportunities. I am delighted this new online shop will give them the opportunity to reach many thousands of customers.”

“It is so important we all support them; web-based businesses are one of the life-lines of our rural economy,” explains Barney White-Spunner, Executive Chairman, Countryside Alliance.

The Countryside Marketplace offers a unique range of products supplied by businesses hand-picked for their pro-countryside ethos.

The Countryside Marketplace offers high profile brands such as Hunter and Tottering by Gently plus superb independent manufacturers including Cole Henley and George Fisher.

It stocks a wide range of products; just one click to the site and you can browse deluxe barbeque sets, prestigious oak dog beds, hen houses, jewellery, dvds, clothing, footwear and you can even order a personalised rugby shirt.

In addition, you can purchase a range of Countryside Alliance merchandise including Christmas cards, ties, mugs, tea towels and posters.

“We want the Countryside Marketplace to become the hub of all pro-countryside business,” says Abi Harding, Sales Director of the Countryside Marketplace.
