Sophie went to the Ludlow Green Festival on Sunday to promote the campaign and Ben was at Greenfields Food Fair in Telford. Both had a great response over the weekend, and many signatures on our petition of support were gathered; as well as a few shares of course...
Then on Bank Holiday Monday we took part in the Market Drayton Carnival. We joined in with our newest shareholder Steve, his family and his Steam Engine, Lady Hesketh. Through the parade we gave out leaflets and collected donations.
With all the press we have had both nationally and locally, it is amazing how so many people in the local town are still unaware of what we are doing. Hopefully this day proved to increase awareness of Fordhall Farm, its current situation and of course to the benefits it has to the local area and beyond. We pass on a huge thanks to all the volunteers who helped us on the day.
