Chairman’s Report

The St Woolos Day, commemorating the end of WW1 was a well run, well attended and very successful event which the Forum enjoyed being part of.

A lot of interest was shown in our stand and website, with many visitors keen to stop and talk, buy our products and take information home with them.

Our ‘Living Off the Land’ products, homegrown, prepared and packaged by Eifion were a very popular addition to the stand.
