  • TRANSATLANTIC TRADE & INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP petition

    Can we encourage as many as possible to sign and/or organise petitions - and if possible to attend the "Day of Action" at the Carmarthen Guildhall on Saturday 30th August at 10am.

    If the TTIP goes ahead, as is being discreetly negotiated at present, it will make billions for the US global corporations and ruin our society, economy and environment in the process.

Excitement mounts over Presteign Food Trail

The Presteigne Food Trail on June 16 is an all day event which has been given funding by the Lottery and Sustainable Tourism Powys, and because so many of the people who live and work in the town have generously volunteered hours of their time to make it happen, most of the day's programme can be given away free of charge . Even car parking charges have been waived by Powys County Council

 

The trail will take you down the bustling High Street, lined with artisan food producers and our own local shops, who will be offering tasty tempters of their wares, through private veggie gardens and down to the community meadow. On the way you can have a talk and courtesy tour about Victorian puddings, by gaslight, in our award winning Judges Lodging, join in the fun at the Church Hall, where the finalists of the Radnorshire Recipe Competition will be cooked, tasted and voted for (entries must be in by 26th May - see website for details) On the meadow, book your children into a cookery workshop run by Easy Peasy (which usually costs £12 a session) or let them join Sam Goddard, Forest School leader, who will take them foraging for wild food and cook elderflower fritters over a campfire. A professional storyteller will be reading in the Yurt and they can make their own strawberry smoothie by pedal power!

Continuing into the evening, there will be a free ceilidh by Bandamania in the big tent and scrumptious wood fired pizzas, barbequed Welsh lamb burgers ,vibrant salads, local ales and ciders available to buy. Everyone will be welcome to join in with this amazing celebration of local food ,but we are still short of a few volunteers . Can you spare a couple of hours,  either before or on the 16th June ?If so, please contact Mo on 262773 by the end of next week.

We also need you to spread the word !! This is a Transition Presteigne initiative. Our website www.presteignefoodtrail.org.uk has the full days programme - please send it round your families and friends and help us make this a very special day to remember .
