A big thank you to all the lovely ladies and gents who came on Saturday, who ate Paleo treats & pretty biscuits and chewy caramel slice. Who tried the fabulous Kokako Fairtrade coffee and the lemon Verbena tea and Lindas delicious Cucumber drink. The Slow Food talk from Alessandra was enlightening, the coffee game from Anutosh educational, (congrats to Diana for winning the prize), and the brief from Christopher on Ooooby and their local fair organic food boxes delivered to your door a great reminder of what is happening out there. (Great participation from the crowd particularly Janet & Jan :)). And Andrea, your table looked beautiful!
