Local Produce and Sustainability Fair

Postponed until the Autumn

Local Businesses Sustainability Clubs, Societies and Organsiations Annual Parish Meeting

The Parish Council's Local Produce and Sustainability Fair has had to be postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The Parish Council's Local Produce and Sustainability Fair (originally Local Food and Sustainability Fair) was due to take place on Saturday 28th March 2020 (10-12 in the Parish Hall), but has had to be postponed. It is hoped that it will now take place in the Autumn, when it will aim to showcase local food suppliers, local micro-businesses and those who promote sustainability, as well as promoting local groups, societies and organisations and the wonderful things they do within the parish. A new date will be advertised nearer the time and hopefully you will be able to come along to the Fair then, meet many of these people and the wonderful things that are produced locally, and find out more about sustainability and how we can all help. Below is a list of those who were originally attending the Fair on 28th March with more information about what they do and links to Facebook pages or websites where appropriate. It is hoped that they will all be able to come to the Fair in the Autumn. In the mean time find out more about what they do by following the links for more information.
