Bright Sunny Morning

Thank you to everyone who have sent messages of support - its always difficult to know if anyone reads blogsites but apparently they do! So, we will continue to post the campagin 'story' so you can all be involved.

It's a beautiful sunny day here at Fordhall if not a little on the nippy side. We now have over 20 lambs (the latest twins born 1 hour ago) and there is a real buzz in the air. Later today Charlotte and myself are off to move tables around a hall, trying to calculate exactly how many people we can squeeze into our charity dinner in May...but more on that later!

Keep up the campagining. This is a team effort. If anyone would like us to send them leaflets please let us know and we can easily send out stuff. Likewise, if there are any sympathetic shops we will send a poster. Thanks everyone.

Greetings!

Very inspiring what you're doing there at Fordhall - can I suggest you put a link back to your main website so newcomers can understand what you're working towards.

It might also be worth getting in touch with big organic retailers like Riverford, Fresh and Wild, Essential Foods etc. to see if they would include something about you when they next talk to customers. Try Harry Carpenter on the Shropshire star as well.

I'm sure you've thought of this too but how about the lottery and comic relief and all those guys?

Keep at it!

Thanks Ben, great ideas.

We have looked into the lottery and unfortunately their timescales are too slow for our project! We hadnt thought about Comic Relief. I'm not sure if its the type of thing they fund, but we'll look into it.

Fresh and Wilde and Riverfords are on our list to recieve posters as soon as they are printed.

If you have any more ideas please do pass them on, and feel free to send the link to our blog to all your friends :-)
Best, Charlotte
