Join us and help grow a community
Our local food and foraging event on Saturday March 14th was well attended.
A good crowd participated in the wild foraging around the town.
We’d like to thank all the local stallholders (see below) who helped make the event a success and our speakers: Nicky Scott and Andy Barron.
