Would you like to see future Farmers' Markets in our town centre on Sundays? The Food Group recently met with a Wiltshire Farmers' Markets Association rep and this idea was suggested. What do you think? Join us at the next Food Group meeting at 7.30pm on Thursday 23rd February in the Wellington Pub.
Did you know that the government is subsidising the burning of trees for power generation? Meanwhile, millions of tons of waste wood are going into land-fill. Sign the petition here to ensure that waste wood is used to generate elecricity, while whole trees are conserved for use in carpentry to lock up carbon and reduce the need for unsustainable timber imports.
