Thanks to everyone who came to our meeting on 11th March - it was another great turnout with some new faces joining us.
Thanks especially to Chris Bannister who told us about the Hampton Flower Show which will be held on 19th September 2020. There are opportunities for local businesses to advertise in the programme so please get in touch with Chris if you are interested: Chrisbfs@aol.com
Vale of Evesham Food & Drink Festival
We also had an update on the new Vale of Evesham Food & Drink Festival (30th-31st May 2020) which we are running with Deliciously Squared, the organisers of Droitwich Food Festival. We have lots of stall-holders already confirmed but we would like more local Vale of Evesham food and drink businesses to get involved so please help us to spread the word. There's a booking form on the website.
