Bit disappointed again with Tatton show.....same obsession with "symbolism" and not enough about drooling over the plants.
The foodbank gives out pasta, cereals, milk, fruit, canned meats, tins of beans, peas, etc etc., ...all the basic foodstuffs. For first time today we gave out childrens' meals designed to give a balanced diet at lunchtime for 5 days a week for next 6 weeks. It is difficult because, as with all good ideas, there are some who take advantage and beat the system. It is all based on a voucher obtained from charity, social, medical and church bodies. At times the poverty some endure is alarming
