Villagers’ food challenge
RESIDENTS in Pill and Easton-in-Gordano are being challenged to only use locally-produced or home-grown food as part of a sustainability project.
Organised by Sustainable Pill and District (SPAD), the challenge will begin on Saturday with the community market, to be held in Baltic Place from 10am.
Former Bristol City footballer Scott Murray will be at the event to launch the scheme, which will run for a week and is aimed at encouraging villagers to shop locally and try their hand at growing their own produce.
The market, which will move to the community centre in Church Place if the weather is wet, will feature a range of stalls including one allowing own-grown produce to be bought or swapped.
The week’s events will continue on Tuesday when villagers are invited to dine on fine locally-sourced food The Leaf restaurant at St Katherine’s School. For more details call the school on 01275 373737.
